Kalyana Mitta

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
