Dharma Ocean is a community of meditators around the world, following the path of embodied spirituality. Dharma Ocean is a non-monastic, householder-based lineage, a community of householder yogins and yoginis, who prioritize the practice of somatic meditation in their lives.
Although we are an inspired and vibrant community, and although there is a deep caring for one another, Dharma Ocean is not an organized religion. We are a large and diffuse community without any definite boundaries, but one linked by a common love of life and the somatic practices that open us to it.
A network of practice groups throughout the world provide opportunities to study the teachings and practices of the Dharma Ocean lineage with others. Within the Dharma Ocean practice community, some practice groups are led by Dharma Ocean teachers, who are authorized to teach and create specific curricula and retreats for their groups. Some groups are formed by Dharma Ocean meditation instructors who are authorized to lead guided meditations and offer mentorship. Other groups are created by inspired students who coordinate regular practice sessions by playing Reggie and Caroline’s teachings and guided meditations.
Dharma Ocean Europe
For those in Europe, you can join an independent newsletter, not officially affiliated with Dharma Ocean, that will keep you up-to-date on events, programs, and other things happening inside of the European Union and other European countries.
* Note: Although supported in many ways by the Dharma Ocean Foundation, all Dharma Ocean sanghas and practice groups are formed and run administratively and financially independent from the Dharma Ocean Foundation.
Listings are geographic region, then by Country, State/Province, and City. Please contact individual groups for meeting details including location.
