Sangha Description: 

SaraSangha is an insight (vipassana) meditation group. Our practice follows the teachings of the Buddha as taught within the tradition of Theravada Buddhism. We welcome both new and experienced practitioners.

We meet for the purpose of meditating as a group, providing each other with support and encouragement, forming friendships, gaining knowledge and understanding through Dhamma readings and talks, sharing information, and discussing experiences and insights as we grow in mindfulness. We aim to use the ancient teachings of the Buddha to positively affect our personal lives, the lives of those around us, and our global community as a whole.

SaraSangha maintains a non-hierarchical, peer-led organizational structure with rotating facilitators so that all members are able to fully engage with the teachings and participate within the group. We are occasionally visited by the monks of the Mahamevnawa Meditation Monastery in Tampa. In this case, our usual schedule will vary some and the readings and discussion segment will be replaced by a Dhamma talk.

Meetings are held every 2nd and 4th Sunday, 4:00 - 6:00 PM, at the Sarasota Mindfulness Institute, 1530 Dolphin Street, Unit 6, downtown Sarasota, between Pineapple and Orange. Cushions and chairs are available.
