Sit around chicago sits around chicago

Sit Around Chicago Sits Around Chicago (affectionately known as SACSAC) started with an errant curiosity back in 2020: what would happen if, once a month, Buddhist practioners came together and attended each other's temples? How can experiencing the diversity and richness of Chicago's Buddhist traditions help our root practice? What kind of community can grow?

SACSAC is the answer to those questions. It is a Buddhist traveling group that visits host temples once a month. It's great for those who have a regular temple and practice; those who want an overview of Buddhism in Chicago; or new practitioners just starting to explore. All are welcome.


We announce each sitting in the monthly newsletter. If you are a temple that would like to host SACSAC or a practitioner that would like to be notified of upcoming events, email us at
