Weekly In-Person Sit Details

When:    Wednesday evenings from 5:30 - 6:45 pm 

                    (Doors open at 5:00 pm.)

Where:   SerenityMe

                       449 Forest Avenue, Suite 210

                       Portland, ME  04101


Group sits are led by Dharma Leaders or Community Volunteers. Doors open at 5:00 pm with formal practice  beginning at 5:30 pm. Depending on who is leading the evening, it may include a guided or silent sit, a Dharma talk or reading, and breakout groups to allow for interaction and opportunities to share our practice with each other. The evening ends at 6:45 pm.  

Open Door operates on a Dana (or generosity) basis; there are no fees charged for any programs offered. Operating in this way allows equal access to the Buddha’s teachings and aligns Open Door with the foundational Buddhist principle and practice of generosity—which may take the form of offering money to the organization to cover expenses, to the teacher to support their livelihood, or contributing by volunteering on a committee.
