Sharing the Dharma Day
with the Sravasti Abbey Community

One Sunday a month, Sravasti Abbey offers Sharing the Dharma Day, an opportunity for newcomers and old friends to explore the Buddha’s teachings and share in community fellowship. Our online version includes afternoon discussion groups over Zoom. If you are fully vaccinated and boosted, please join us in person. Your nutritious vegetarian potluck offering is welcomed, and registration is required.
Sharing the Dharma Day topics are drawn from the book, An Open-hearted Life: Transformative Methods for Compassionate Living, by Abbey founder and abbess Ven. Thubten Chodron and Eastern Washington University psychologist Russell Kolts.
People from all faiths and backgrounds can apply the principles explored on Sharing the Dharma Day to enhance their lives.
All Abbey Dharma programs are offered freely, and your offering is welcomed. Make an offering here.
