    We had 23 people attend, more than I expected, so we had to get more food from the Vietnamese restaurant nearby, which was excellent. Gene did an excellent job guiding the meditation and giving a talk/discussion. There was good participation and interaction or people with each other.

      Good talk. Good food. We need more meetings like this to build sangha community. Gene was impressive.

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.
