The Boston Dharma Punx (DPX) meet weekly to meditate and share our personal experiences with meditation and Buddhist principles. Our meetings 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 appreciated but not expected. Our meetings are always free.

About Us

Boston Dharma Punx was formed in 2009. The group got it’s name from the book Dharma Punx published in 2003. The Boston Dharma Punx are not affiliated with any other organization or individual. Many Dharma Punx groups exist around the world with no affiliation to each other except that we share the same name.

We meet every Sunday at 4pm for meditation and discussion at South Boston Yoga, located at 36 W Broadway St. in Boston, right across from the Broadway T stop. For more information, send an email to or join our Facebook Group.
