What we're about
Welcome! The Mindful Path Sangha https://mindfulpathsangha.weebly.com/ is a group that meets regularly to learn and practice Buddhist Meditation. This practice can bring wonderful changes to ones life in both physical and spiritual health; transforming suffering into happiness. We are an informal group and welcome those who want to try meditation. We follow the teachings and practices of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
Thich Nhat Hanh is a global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist, revered around the world for his powerful teachings and bestselling writings on mindfulness and peace. He is the man Martin Luther King called “An Apostle of peace and nonviolence.” His key teaching is that, through mindfulness, we can learn to live happily in the present moment—the only way to truly develop peace, both in one’s self and in the world.
Thich Nhat Hanh is a teacher, poet and writer and this is an inspiring quote from him:
“Around us, life bursts with miracles--a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and feel discouraged by life's daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”
In the same location there is a Monday night Group Sangha (MNG) https://mondaynightgroupsangha.weebly.com/ who meet with the guidance of Venerable Thích Thông Pháp, an Australian monk ordained in the Bamboo Forest Vietnamese Zen Tradition. Mindful Path Sangha join with the Monday Night Group on the last Sunday of the month for a Day of Mindfulness in the spirit of “Respecting differences, pursuing Inclusiveness".
