Call for Retreatant – Volunteers

If your practice is ready for some striving in solitude and you'd like to go off to a cool northern forest in the hills just south of the Canadian border and meditate in a kuti among the trees, this might be a perfect way to wrap up your summer.

Portland Friends of the Dhamma is a lay Buddhist community affiliated and guided by the lineage of Ajahn Chah and Abhayagiri Monastery.

Enjoy silent meditation, Dhamma talks and community activities designed to support our understanding and experience of the Buddha's teachings in daily life.
