What we're about

MISSION
We provide a home for the study and practice of Buddhism, yet do not advocate one particular school of Buddhism. Our community is simply a bridge for people to learn how to make change within their own life and be of benefit to others. Our intention is to help people live with the practices of generosity, morality, patience, diligence, concentration and wisdom. It is the cultivation and integration of these guiding principles that leads to a happy and healthy life.

VISION
We believe the daily practice of loving-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity has a profound impact on humanity. Our intention is to provide an accepting and tolerant space where people from all races, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, religions and cultures can come together to build a peaceful community.

This is an open group hosted by Peter Kuhn who is ordained by Thich Nhat Hanh and enjoys more than 30 years of recovery from drugs and alcohol. The group explores how an engaged practice of mindfulness, meditation and Buddha’s teachings can nourish our understanding and application of the 12 steps, help us grow spiritual awakening and cultivate freedom from all afflictions in our daily lives. This is not theory, it is measured by our ability to show up for life with greater intention, direction and enjoyment. All are welcome, you need not be Buddhist or in 12 Step recovery to join us. Format includes sitting meditation, Dharma talk and group sharing.
