This is a meetup group for people who are interested in the practice of mindfulness, particularly in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. We have numerous meetings, sometimes three or four a week. There are two weekly meetings currently, the Monday night meditation and Friday noble silence meditation. The group is called a Sangha, the word for community in Buddhism. We practice in a Buddhist tradition, but we are open to people from any background or religion. All of our meetings are free to attend and participate in, although you have the option of donating however much you wish. Please check out the website below:
The Honey Locust Sangha meets at The Yoga Path (7641 Pacific Street) at 6:30 every monday. This meeting starts off with a greeting, then 20 minutes of guided sitting meditation, followed by 10 minutes of walking meditation, and then 20 minutes of silent sitting meditation. This is followed by an hour of some aspect of the practice in the tradition.
Once a month, currently on the 4th Saturday, we gather at the home of a Sangha member for a half- day of mindfulness. Typically this will involve a Dharma talk given via video chat and a mindful meal.
Here is the approximate schedule:
9:15 Arrivals begin
9:45 Check in and meditation
10:45 Dharma talk
12:00 Lunch (brown-bag and mindful)
1:00 Dharma discussion, ending at around 2
Please feel free to attend all or any portion of the activities. Please call Patrice Watson[masked]
