About Red Clay Sangha:

Red Clay Sangha offers Buddhist practice - meditation, chanting, study and fellowship - in Atlanta, Georgia. We draw from many traditions and lineages, especially Vipassana and Zen (our guiding teacher received dharma transmission in the Vipassana Tradition) and have a sangha (community)-oriented approach to teaching and ministry. The sangha is dedicated to bringing the compassion and wisdom of Buddha's teachings and practice to all.

Meeting Locations:

Wherever possible our events and activities are held in hybrid format (in person at our space and on Zoom). Some events, generally for reasons of safety, are in person only; and some, for practical reasons, are held only on Zoom. See Programs page and Calendar for a full list of activities. If joining an event on Zoom, use this link.

New to Red Clay Sangha? Welcome! 

All are welcome, whoever you are, wherever you call home, whomever you love, our Buddhist sangha welcomes you to join us on the path of understanding and love - regardless of experience level. We look forward to getting to know you!

If you plan to attend in person: upon arrival please enter quietly, remove your shoes and join in the meditation session if it is in progress. Modest, comfortable clothing is appropriate. Please do not wear fragrance. Once entering the meditation hall, please remember that this is our sacred space.
