Meditation Culture

Pragmatic Dharma social groups (Boston)

DHO seems pretty isolated, atleast in the Boston area - you can sometimes meet people on retreats, but they usually come from far across. There are plenty of meditation groups, but the "Pragmatic Dharma" flavor seems diluted among "Warm fuzzy meditation".

I understand the diminishing value of talking rather than practicing, but I still think it would be valuable to connect more with local practitioners either as a regular group or occassional social event.

I feel like this must have come up before, but is there a particular reason that this sort of meetup is discouraged, or is it just lack of interest density?

I would be willing to organize a meetup group, but also just instersted in meeting other DHO meditators for *insert casual social environment here*
