In our tradition, the word Sangha refers to a "community that lives in harmony and awareness". We are a Sangha practicing mindfulness and meditation in the tradition of Zen Master  Thich Nhât Hanh, who teaches Buddhist mindfulness practice at Plum Village, France. Locally, we are connected with the monks and nuns of Deer Park Monastery, in Escondido, CA (near San Diego).

Our Teacher, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
We call him Thây. This term conveys both great respect and great affection.

Our practice meetings include silent sitting meditation, walking meditation, singing and chanting, readings, and dharma discussions. More information about our tradition can be found at the Plum Village and Deer Park Monastery websites. These websites also contain lots of information about our teacher, Thich Nhât Hanh.

For information on how to get in touch with us, see the contact information at the bottom of this web page.

Schedule of meetings

Our Sangha met weekly from January 2008 through February of 2014. We do not currently have a regularly scheduled meeting time. We are hoping to reestablish a regularly scheduled practice when conditions are favorable.

In the meantime, we invite friends on the path to take part in the activities of these other local Sanghas:
