Live Oak Sangha*

April 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

Sanctuary, 1624 NW 5th Ave
Gainesville, FL 32603 United States

*pre-registered adult small group A Sangha is a community that lives and practices in harmony and awareness. We are guided, supported, and encouraged by the Dharma teachings of the Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh. Our practice is the cultivation of mindfulness, out of which arises understanding, joy, compassion, and transformation. As a Sangha, our practice is made up of many elements such as listening to the bell, walking meditation, smiling, embracing our suffering, mindful breathing, sitting meditation, and singing. If you would like to join us on Wednesday evenings, all that we ask is that you have some familiarity with Thich Nhat Hanh (perhaps have read one of his many books) and be truly interested in mindfulness practice. And if you decide to join us, we hope you will come to find and enjoy safe refuge in this humble and noble Sangha.
