Hello and Welcome to the Pragmatic Dharma Society!

What is PDS?
PDS is a meeting point for a variety of local & virtual communities that are loosely connected by some common elements of the spiritual path:
  • Awakening is possible
  • Discussion of ones practice is fun and constructive
  • Peer-led and not heirarchical
  • Openness of information
  • Balancing traditionalism and modern innovation
What to Expect at a PDS Meeting:
PDS is open to meditators of all skill and experience levels. In general, people who are fairly committed to practice and are serious about personal transformation will find enjoy hanging out in PDS groups. Please feel free to search the directory below for a group near you. If there are none available, you can always join one of our monthly video chats to connect over the internet with like-minded practitioners. Generally, meeting formats follow a loose pattern: we go around in a circle, introduce ourselves & provide a brief overview of what has been happening in our meditations recently. After everyone is done sharing, anyone who has hot-button topics or questions from their own experience might want to share. Others chime in and the conversation goes from there. The goal of PDS is simply to connect like-minded travelers on the exciting & challenging journey inside that deep meditation provides.
