Nagaloka provides a warm and compassionate environment in which people come together to cultivate loving-kindness in their lives. It is a place where people ‘practice’ and take part in a process of learning and opening and listening to themselves and to others. One of the most comforting things for me was the deep acceptance that I felt from the very first day I attended a meditation/study group. People instantly accepted me for who I was and where I was starting from. The people at Nagaloka truly celebrate the positive, loving side of human nature and, in doing so, help its members to understand the importance of loving-kindness in everything that we do. Nagaloka is a supportive community and by attending weekly meditation and study groups my life has been opened up to the power of love and compassion in our world. Louise Tuski

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and Nagaloka for making me feel at home. Never in my life have I ever felt the way I do when I am at Nagaloka and I look forward to growing with our community. Trish Moulton

I have belonged to Nagaloka for about four years and have known Dharmasuri for about twenty years. Probably long before she even became a mitra I could see the change that her commitment to the Buddha; Dharma & Sangha had made in her. I joined Nagaloka, not because she asked me to, but rather because I was seeking something inside of me. I did not know it at the time but I was looking for the real John. The kind, compassionate and loving person “inside” of me. Over and over again during the last four years I have had these “truths” (about me) reflected back to me by Dharmasuri and many others in our Sangha, This loving kindness has helped alleviate the years of self criticism I had habituated myself to. Nagaloka; Dharmasuri; the Buddha; the Dharma & all “my” Sangha have given me a gift that I had seemed to be unable to give myself. I feel a new freedom and lightness that I have never ever before felt. John Kavanaugh

When I walk through the doors of Nagolaka and take a seat on my meditation bench, I feel that I am home. With the support of the other members of our small but dedicated Sangha, I feel ready to embark on my spiritual journey; a journey that will help me experience life in a more deep and meaningful way.
