Founded in 2009, Boston Dharma Punx are a community of rebellious natured people who have found solace in the search from within. Our practice is based on the teachings of Noah Levine, Theravadan Buddhist teacher and author, who correlates the outer rebellion in punk rock to the inner rebellion the original Buddha talked about 2,500 years ago.

About Us

Join us every Sunday at 4pm for our weekly meditation and discussion.

No meditation experience, religious affiliation, or anything else required… show up, sit down, and practice with a great group of people. We’re a peer-facilitated group; no gurus, teachers, or dogma here. Just a bunch of misfits, punks, and general malcontents that have found a better way to rebel and want to share that with others.

We meditate and destroy 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.
