KM Groups

Kalyana Mitta (KM) Groups

“Kalyana Mitta,” often translated as “dharma friends” or sometimes “good company,” is at the heart of a vibrant dharma community. KMs are small groups that meet regularly to share and support each other in bringing meditation practice into daily life.

If you would like more information, or are interesting in starting a group of your own, please contact Jan.
