Group Description

Welcome to the Yahoo Group for Deep River Sangha, a Community of Mindful Living. We practice weekly sitting and walking meditation in the tradition of the Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, poet, peace activist, and author, who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King.

"Mindfulness" is the state of being aware and awake in the present moment.
It is the opposite of being "absent minded." The practice of mindfulness permits us to get in touch with what is happening within and around us and to recognize unbeneficial thoughts, speech and actions that lead to unnecessary suffering, and to identify and nourish beneficial mental qualities such as loving kindness, compassion, and understanding.

Visitors to our weekly practice are welcome, regardless of experience level or religious affiliation. There is no charge to attend (although the practice of "dana" or generosity is accepted with gratitude). Your most valuable contribution to our community is your mindful presence.

We meet on Sunday afternoons from 4-5:30 p.m. at the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Greensboro. We also meet on Wednesdays from 7-8:30 p.m. at New Garden Friends Meeting. Changes to this schedule and notices of special events such as retreats are posted to this group and will be emailed to you if you have chosen that option.

Membership in our Yahoo Group is restricted to prevent spam (and other forms of unmindful speech). If you would like to join, please visit one of our regular practices.

Namaste,
