Sacred Mountain Sangha

Sacred Sangha Online emerged from Dharmagiri Sacred Mountain Retreat and Sacred Mountain Sangha.

Sacred Mountain Sangha grew from the work of Kittisaro and Thanissara at Dharmagiri, the Non Profit and Dharma centre they founded in 2000 in the Drakensberg-uKhahlamba Mountains on the border of South Africa and Lesotho. Sacred Mountain Sangha is a 501 (c) 3 Northern California based public charity.

The core orientation of SMS is Buddhist practice informed by the renunciant and contemplative practice of the Theravada Forest school and the universally compassionate and non-dual teachings of Mahayana and Kuan Yin.

Our core practice is informed by attuning to the timeless, living Dharma and the shared belonging and responsibility within the web of life. Our core commitment is to work for a sustainable, just, and equitable world.

Sacred Sangha Online offers retreats, trainings, online classes, teachings and events that support the reclamation of the sacred within all. Our practice is informed by meditative and devotional practice and the use of ceremony, which places humans within a cosmology of profound inter-relationship with all.

Our commitment is to foster a widening collaboration within a diverse congregation of kindred spirits. We aim to be guided by open mindedness, depth inquiry, social, racial, environmental, and animal justice, and a commitment to engage the challenges of our times.
