Kalyana Mitta (spiritual friends) Groups bring together members of the dharma community to study and share practice experiences in a friendly, supportive environment. Groups are generally comprised of six to twelve members to afford an intimacy not always available in larger sitting groups. The format usually involves 20-30 minutes of meditation, an opportunity to check in about one's personal dharma practice, a group discussion of an agreed-upon topic or discussion of a book the group is reading together. Between-meeting practices support conscious action and awakening. Kalyana Mitta groups may be led by a pair of senior students or run collectively by all members (peer groups).
Members of the Insight Meditation Community of Colorado have established Kalyana Mitta
Groups that meet in Boulder, Louisville and Lafayette. Some of these groups are currently open to new members. If you would like more information please e-mail David Mendosa or phone David at (720) 319-8423.
