Living Dharma Program

The Living Dharma Program is an opportunity for people to practice and study at Tara Mandala for a minimum of 6 weeks, with a one-month mutual discernment process. Tara Mandala strives to create a work, practice and study community that reflects the Buddha’s teachings. Not only do we see our work as essential to our Buddhist practice, we see Buddhist teachings as indispensable to the experience. As such, we seek people who want to be a part of our community, develop and sustain a regular meditation practice, and who have a sincere interest in bringing their Dharma practice off the cushion and into their lives.
