We are a Buddhist meditation group. We meet at the Hai An pagoda, which is a Vietnamese temple in New Britain, CT. Our meetings are held every Wednesday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Our weekly services are influenced by Zen and Pure Land traditions, although we respect and honor all Buddhist traditions. Our practice typically includes sitting and walking meditation, chanting, devotionals, and a discussion of our practice. One Wednesday per month we review the precepts for wholesome living set down by the Buddha. One other Wednesday per month, our services are led by Venerable Xin-Xing, a Buddhist monk who visits from Dharma Seal Monastery in New York. All are welcome regardless of where you are on your spiritual path. Please wear modest, loose fitting clothing appropriate for sitting meditation. Learn how to meditate and calm your mind.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
