Sangha Description: 

Open to all who wish to develop their mindfulness practice and even to recover from the suffering (mental anguish) caused by delusions of self. Generally, the first half hour is guided meditation practice, followed by a Dharma talk with plenty of time for response and discussion. Both chairs and cushions are available on location.

Our teacher is a Dharmacharya/Lay minister ordained by Venerables Pannavati and Pannadipa into the Embracing Simplicity Contemplative Order at Heartwood Refuge and Retreat Center, NC. This group is also supported by the participation of other Dharmacharyas in training.
