Who Is Assaya Sangha?

We are a community of women, diverse in our stories and identities, connected by our devotion to the Dharma. We are based in the San Francisco East Bay and we are grounded in the lineage of Theravadan Buddhism.  

Live your life. Do the dishes. Do the laundry. Take your kids to kindergarten. Raise your children and your grandchildren. Take care of the community in which you live. Make all of that your path, and follow your path with heart.
