...Be an instrument of peace



  Sangha Shantivanam welcomes people of all spiritual traditions interested in deepening their contemplative life.

We invite you to join us for our meetings which take place twice each month, on the first and third Sundays at 4 pm.  The Sangha room is located at 210 High Street, Santa Cruz, CA.  We enter on the left side of the building near the cul de sac.

Our meetings include Sanskrit chant, readings from Universal Wisdom and Christian traditions, chant of psalms, dharma talk, meditation, intercessory and closing prayer followed by a light potluck supper.
