What we're about

Mindfulness Meditation Practice in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh South Florida and beyond

We gather as a Sangha (community of practitioners) in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh to provide an opportunity to those that wish to deepen their Mindfulness Meditation Practice in the Buddhist Spiritual Tradition.

Sitting and Walking Meditation, Recitation of the Mindfulness Trainings, Dharma teachings, discussions and sharings are an integral part of our Sangha meetings.

We also offer Meditation Classes, Days of Mindfulness, Retreats, Tea Ceremonies, and other Vietnamese Zen practices.

Additionally, we provide a chance to mindfully commune with nature with our Eco-Activities, Mindful Hikes, bike rides, picnics, and field trips, as well as to make new friends and socialize with a focus during our outings and Dharma Activities.

As Thay said during a Dharma Talk at the Hand of the Buddha Retreat in Plum Village:

"If we know how to live our daily life in mindfulness, concentration, and harmony, then peace, happiness, and brotherhood become a reality."

We welcome the participation of people from all backgrounds, regardless of ethnic origin, race, cultural background, socio-economic class, age, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, or physical ability.

We are committed to fostering a practice environment where all may touch the Dharma and find healing and nourishment.

"In society, much of our suffering comes from feeling disconnected from one another. We often do not feel a real connection even with people we live close to, such as our neighbors, our co-workers, and even our family members. Each person lives separately, cut off from the support of the community. Being with the Sangha can heal these feelings of isolation and separation. We practice together, we meditate, and, together, we share and discuss the Dharma as a way of life. Just by participating with other fellow practitioners in these activities, we can experience a tangible sense of peace, love, and acceptance.

Thây often says that the Sangha is a garden, full of many varieties of trees and flowers. When we can look at ourselves and at others as beautiful, unique flowers and trees we can truly grow to understand and love one another. One flower may bloom early in the spring and another flower may bloom in late summer. One tree may bear many fruits and another tree may offer cool shade. No one plant is greater, or lesser, or the same as any other plant in the garden. Each member of the Sangha also has unique gifts to offer to the community. We each have areas that need attention as well. When we can appreciate each member's contribution and see our weaknesses as potential for growth we can learn to live together harmoniously. Our practice is to see that we are a flower or a tree, and that we are the whole garden as well, all interconnected."
