What we're about

May you be happy and warm :)

Since 1989, Boston Old Path Sangha has been practicing meditation and mindfulness in the tradition of Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

We have regular meetings several times a week at different locations. These are our regular "sittings"-- meetings in which we practice sitting and walking meditation, read a short passage on the dharma (Buddhist teachings), and share our insights into the teachings and trying to bring mindfulness practice into daily life. You can come to any of these sittings without RSVPing.

We also have occasional days of mindfulness, when we gather for a more extended period (usually only half a day, despite the name) to practice together a bit more intensively. These days of mindfulness often focus on some particular theme.

New people who want to learn more about meditation and mindfulness are always welcome at any of our regular sittings or days of mindfulness. One of our experienced members will be happy to introduce you to the basics of the practice and answer and questions you have.
