Kalyana Mitta Groups

Having admirable people as friends, companions, and colleagues is actually the whole of the holy life.
~ The Buddha

Kalyana Mitta is a Pali phrase that means “spiritual friend.” Kalyana Mitta (KM) Groups are small peer groups of individuals who are committed to supporting one another in their practice and spiritual journey.

Because these groups are small and meet regularly over an extended period of time, they allow the development of intimacy and trust. Members can share openly and deeply, and the heart of the Dharma is enriched in their practice and their daily lives.

The links on the right include information about how to start or join a KM Group, guidelines for group development and mindful sharing, and other helpful resources. There is also a link to a list of Triangle Insight’s KM Groups.

If you’d like to join a group, please send us the KM Questionnaire. Our program continues to evolve, and we welcome your input. Please send ideas for starting a group, questions about joining a group, and questions or suggestions about the KM program to Sarah Tillis, KM Coordinator, at [email protected].

We feel deep gratitude for the dedication of our community.
May our Kalyana Mitta groups be of great benefit to all.
