Group meditation: Wednesday evenings – Interbeing Sangha and Earth Holder Sangha ONLINE

Every Wednesday
7:00-8:30pm CT

Currently meeting ONLINE through Zoom.

Our Wednesday evening meditation group alternates subject matter each week.

Interbeing Sangha is a meditation group practicing and studying the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh. The weekly practice consists of two sitting meditations, walking meditation, singing/chanting, and a dharma talk or study. On the first Wednesday of each month, we recite the Five Mindfulness Trainings during the gathering.

Part of the Awakening Heart Community at Dallas Meditation Center, our meditation practice is inspired by the tradition of Plum Village and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.

The Earth Holder Sangha is the branch of the Plum Village tree that applies Thich Nhat Hanh’s core teachings on engaged Buddhism, mindful living, racial and social justice, and inter-being with Mother Earth at this time of ecological crisis.  The Earth Holder Sangha at Dallas Meditation Center is a part of the Interbeing Sangha and follows the same format but with readings, presentations, and discussions geared toward environmental stewardship, issues of climate change, social justice, and racism. They meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

Open to all levels of meditation experience, from beginners to more experienced meditators. We welcome persons of any spiritual tradition, including those not part of any spiritual or faith tradition.
