Everything changes…so the Buddha said.
A cold winter becomes a wet spring becomes a dry summer.
Northwest Dharma Association is changing too. We’re building inclusive communities, partnering with contemplative caregivers, co-sponsoring the international Buddhist Recovery Summit in October.
And — the best part — we’re handing off NWDA to the welcome new generation of deep-practicing, forward-looking, socially engaged, eclectic, nonsectarian young Buddhists.
Together, with community partners and advisors, the association’s programs are wide open.
Inclusive communities bring together lay and monastic Buddhists, Asian temples and cutting-edge mindfulness science.
Contemplative caregiving supports anyone who serves others in stressful environments: family and professional caregivers, chaplains, nurses and physicians, schoolteachers, social welfare workers, and people in the criminal justice systems.
On November 11, NWDA and Nalanda West are co-sponsoring a day we’re calling “Celebrating the MahaSangha,” with speakers, discussions, arts, music, and more. Join us for this celebration. Support NWDA and the Buddhist community.
