What we're about

The practice of mindfulness helps alleviate suffering and allows us more joy in our lives. By practicing together, our mindfulness becomes more solid, relaxed, and joyful. We practice with understanding, openness, and a receptive heart. We welcome everyone who wishes to learn the art of meditation and mindful living regardless of race, ethnic or cultural origin, gender, religious practice, or sexual orientation.

The Mindfulness Practice Community of Houston (MPC-Houston) is a community of lay practitioners inspired by the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh (Plum Village). The community, formed originally under the name Dharma Rain, was founded in January 1997 by three members of the Order of Interbeing, (Tiep Hien Order.) The purpose of the sangha (a Sanskrit word for community) is to support each other in learning to live with awareness.
