What we're about

This is a group dedicated to coming together as a community (sangha) to meditate together and be inspired to practice mindfulness in our daily lives. We follow the teachings and practice of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. We welcome folks from all walks of life and all levels of experience with meditation. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and there will by opportunity for discussion.

UPDATE FOR OCTOBER 24, 2021 MEETING

Online event

Mindfulness Practice Community of Vancouver is moving back online for fall 2021.

We will continue to re-assess the safety of in-person sangha gatherings through the coming months. For our next gathering, please join us on Zoom:

Time: 6:30 – 7:30pm
https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81608500334
Meeting ID:[masked]
Passcode: To be posted at mindfulnessvancouver.org about ten minutes prior to start time

We invite everyone who joins our online sangha gatherings to practice the following together:

Enter the online sangha space as you would any other sacred in-person space: With your full presence, open heart, respect, and without external distractions as much as possible (for example, other electronic devices / windows etc).
Please do your best to arrive on time, and stay for the entire session if possible. If you arrive late, we will have you wait in the waiting room until the next section begins. We invite you to use that time to enjoy your breathing mindfully. Likewise, if you need to leave early, please do your best to wait until a transition point before leaving.
In order for us to feel safe together and have a sense of togetherness with each other, please keep your video camera on for the duration of the online sangha session.
Please keep your microphone muted when not speaking. Unmute yourself when you are speaking.
