The Boston Dharma Punx meet weekly to meditate and share our personal experiences with meditation and Buddhist principles. Our meeting are peer-led. Everyone is welcome to join us regardless of their meditation experience.

There are no teachers and there is no hierarchy. We encourage members to: lead meditation, facilitate meetings and serve on our steering committee. We seek to provide space for authentic expression and civil disagreement. Everything is part of our practice.

We support the meditation retreat practice of our members through the DPX Boston fund. Donations to the DPX Boston fund are appreciate but not expected. Our meetings are always free.
