Welcome to Dartmouth!

We hope you are enjoying a brilliant winter with ample holiday time.

It has been wonderful to see continued growth at our new space and we look forward to offering you rich teachings that support making Enlightened Society possible.

Tuesdays 7-9:15 pm, we welcome anyone interested in learning how to meditate or already have a regular practice to join us for meditation, tea social, followed by a talk or discussion on topics of Shambhala Buddhism and applications of meditation in daily life.

Continuing throughout the year we offer diverse programs and special practice and study events offered by visiting teachers. See our calendar page for what is happening.

We warmly invite you to explore inherent sanity, gentleness and humor.
“Enlightened society is not a utopia, but a place where we are brave enough to see— and be—just who we are, surrendering our fantasies of something better. When we do that, the discovery of our own goodness on this planet becomes an exercise in appreciation and wonderment. Slowing down to self-reflect and feel our worthiness, and to feel confidence in it, creates space. Then we have the actual intelligence to know which way to go.”
