A sangha is a local community of mindfulness practitioners who gather to meditate, to share their joys and difficulties, and to encourage each other on the path of practice. Meeting regularly with others to sit and share together is a precious way to cultivate our understanding and compassion and to re-establish our deep connection with others. Join us for a Day of Mindfulness (DOM).
At November’s DOM, there is also an optional segment for those who wish to renew their Five Mindfulness Trainings aspirations. All are welcome.
The DOM is a one-day mindfulness retreat in the tradition of Plum Village and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. It is a day for the community to come back together to be nourished from the collective energies, practising leaving behind work and worries, to experience the many wonders of life. Together we learn to enjoy doing daily things with mindfulness – sitting, listening, eating, resting, walking, speaking – bringing our body and mind into the present moment.
