What we're about

Beginners Mind meets twice weekly: on Tuesday mornings from 7:30-8:30 at the Yoga for Wellness site located at 1175 E Parkcenter in Boise; and on Wednesday evenings at 1627 S Orchard (2nd floor) in
Bose: 6:30pm for social time/meditation at 7:00 pm. Once a month there is an evening potluck and social session. The location and date vary, so please contact Kathryn Montgomery for information: 208-559-6924 or check out our website at Our meetings include sitting and walking meditation, chants, recitations and Dharma discussions, all based on the daily practice at Thich Nhat Hanh's monasteries in southern France and throughout North America. They include monthly renewals of the precepts known as the Five Mindfulness Trainings. Beginners Mind Sangha was started in 1994 by members of the Order of Interbeing, a socially engaged lay order dedicated to application of the Buddhist precepts to contemporary life, founded by Thich Nhat Hanh, the widely published Vietnamese Zen master. The sangha also sponsors three and five-day retreats conducted by visiting teachers, plus individual Days of Mindfulness one Saturday each month throughout the year
