In-Person Sangha Meetings

Our in-person meetings are held in the Parish Hall at First Parish Church, 425 Congress Street, Portland, Maine. If there is inclement weather, the decision to cancel or move to Zoom will be done by 4p on the day of the meeting. The website will also be updated to reflect these changes.

Sangha Potlucks

Our potlucks start at 5p. Contact Lisa Marie for potluck guidelines.

Quarterly Sangha Care Meetings

Sangha Care meetings are held as opportunities to ask questions or raise issues about any and all aspects of the Sangha. These could include the spending of Sangha donations, the various roles members can take within the Sangha, the Sangha format, or interpersonal issues that may need addressing by our Care-Taking Council. Sangha Care meetings are open to all members of the Sangha. Attendance is not mandatory, but encouraged. Our Sangha Care meetings are held quarterly and decisions are based on consensual decision-making. (If you’d like more information on the ins-and-outs of consensus decision-making, check out this handout from Seeds for Change.) All Sangha Care meetings are held at 5:30p, an hour before a regularly scheduled Zoom Sangha meeting.
