Sugarplum Sangha

Whether it's time, energy, presence, practice, or a financial contribution, everyone has something to offer

There are many ways to offer support to Sugarplum Sangha. You can come for a sangha or personal retreat, join a community work day, make a general donation, or give to a specific project. Look for your opportunity to build sangha below.


Financial donations support the residential practice at Mariposa and provide financial assistance for retreats. Because Sugarplum doesn't charge for activities, dana is vital to making our activities available. Sugarplum Sangha is a project of the Mariposa Institute, which is a non-profit organization. Click below to donate.


Mariposa is tucked into the rural and rugged terrain of the Mendocino  oak woodlands. We put our mindfulness practice into action by caring for the land and facilities that serve as a spiritual home to many people. Check our calendar for the next opportunity to grab a shovel or hammer and join the fun. Email for info.


Box Car

The Box Car is an exciting construction project to grow and deepen our community and offer comfortable resting and practice space to visiting teachers. With completion of the Box Car,  practitioners can experience community life for a month before transitioning  to a cabin and becoming full time residents.
