Please Read: 12 South Dharma Center is closing on July 15, 2016

After 8 wonderful years, the 12 South Dharma Center will cease operation by July 15, 2016. All groups meeting there are moving to new locations. Due to the extrordinary success of the 12 South area, our space is no longer conducive to meditation. Along with traffic and parking congesiton in the area, a coffee house/juice bar recently opened directly below our center. It operates 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. The loud and continous rock and pop music, whirring of blenders and conversation is incompatible with our silent practice. Please visit each group's website for informaiton on their new locaitons.

Many thanks for all who made this center possible and espeically to Sharon Safer, who got the ball rolling to fulfill her vision of shared dharma center in Nashville. In the future, our three meditation groups hope to create a new shared dharma center. We will keep this page up and running for updates and announcements.
