Santussikā Bhikkhuni Weekend of Practice and Teaching


We are delighted to welcome back Santussikā Bhikkhuni to Portland Friends of the Dhamma for a weekend of conversation, meditation, teaching, and meal offerings March 6-8, 2020. 

Ayya Santussikā teaches directly from the suttas giving them focus and relevance in daily life. Her sutta study group at Karuna Vihara is famously popular. We were so engaged by her teaching and warmth last year that we encourage you to hear her. She will be accompanied by Cittānandā Bhikkhuni. Both reside at Karuna Vihara in the Bay area. All are welcome.

Gatherings are offered by dana (donation). If you have the means, whatever you are inspired to give is gratefully accepted.
