Mission Dharma is a sangha led by Howard Cohn that has gathered in the Mission District of San Francisco for over 25 years. Sangha members come together as a community on Tuesday nights for meditation and to hear Buddhist teachings. As a sangha, we support one another in the process of awakening in order to live our lives with more mindfulness, compassion, and joy. Everyone is invited to attend. No prior meditation experience is necessary.
Location: St. John's Episcopal Church, 1661 15th Street at Julian Ave. (between Valencia & Mission). The church entrance is on Julian St. through the beautiful garden.
