Welcome to the Connecticut sangha of the Dharma Teacher Order!
Whether you’re only somewhat curious about the ideas expressed in Buddhism and want to learn a little more, or you already know the depth and breadth of the ‘skillful means’ of the teachings and want to deepen your understanding, we wholeheartedly welcome you to join us, be it only occasionally, or regularly.
Discussion Forum Pilot
The Connecticut sangha has discussed how the DTO could use a discussion forum in their activities. As of January, 2018 we have an instance of the software, MyBB (my bulletin board), installed on our site to use to answer this question. The active members in the CT sangha have been contacted by email with the ID and password to use to log in to this forum.
The forum itself can be reached at forum.dharmateacherorder.org. (This is the regular address of of website, dharmateacherorder.org prefixed with the word forum and a period.)
If you are not currently part of our evaluation team and would like to be, let the webmaster know and he/she will gladly add you.
We meet approximately every other Saturday from 9:00 AM to noon during the months of September to April. Check the schedule link on this page (under current year info) for the specific days.
Please try to arrive a bit early to give yourself a chance to settle in.
The CT sangha will have meditation cushions set out for the normal bi-weekly practices. You are certainly welcome to bring your own cushion or meditation bench if you’d prefer.
As a sign of respect, please remove your shoes before entering the practice room
