The Mindfulness Practice Group is a community, a sangha, supporting each other in meditatve practices. We are peer-led and lay-led: We are all each others' teachers. All are welcome to sit with us; our group practices are Buddhist, yet we respect all meditative practices and celebrate the diversity of practice among us.

The MPG was established nearly two decades ago as a sangha in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Zen master and founder of the Order of Interbeing, whose speech and practice guidelines inspired our guidelines, our use of the bell, and many of our ceremonies. We are a supporting sangha of the Unitarian Universalist Buddhist Fellowship.

We have two weekly meditation practice sessions.

Sunday mornings our Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation meets in the Emerson Room of the Fahs House. In the summer we meet at 8:45 AM. Starting on September 19th we meet at 11AM. These sessions are beginner-friendly, with twenty minutes of lightly guided meditation.

Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30, usually in the sanctuary. We begin with opening words, the lighting of the chalice, and forty minutes of silent meditation; we usually have a talk or readings, followed by discussion.
