Diversity & Representation

At Southsea Sangha, we aspire always to nurture community and connection.

Southsea Sangha is dedicated to creating a welcoming and open-hearted refuge for all people, to explore the life-transforming practice of meditation and dharma practice.

Open Hearts - Open Doors
We are committed to creating a truly inclusive Sangha and open our doors and hearts to people from all social identities, including all ethnicities, classes, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages, abilities and cultures.

We strive to cultivate an awareness and appreciation of the value of diversity and are continuously working towards creating a Sangha which represents all of the beautifully rich orientations which create our strong island city.

We are particularly committed to undoing racism and drawing attention to white privilege in and outside of our dharma communities to create a truly inclusive Sangha. 

Our Committee, Facilitators and Volunteers are actively engaged in activities and training that make real our aspiration to dissolve barriers that separate us from each other so that all feel welcome, seen and heard at Southsea Sangha.

We acknowledging the need to recognize and dissolve barriers that separate us from each other.
