What we're about

Many Branches Sangha started in 2007 and has been meeting weekly ever since.

While many of our members are most interested in the Insight Meditation tradition (Vipassana, also known as Theravada Buddhism), we also participate in and read/study other traditions, such as Thich Nhat Hanh, Shambhala, Mahayana Buddhism and others - thus our name: "Many Branches".

At our gatherings we: meditate together, sometimes listen to a Buddhist podcast teaching or a reading from a book, lastly we discuss how we apply Buddhist principles to our daily life.

Please join us, we welcome new members.

We meet every Saturday at the United Methodist Church of Pleasantville.

Time: 9:00 am to 10:30 am
