 Our Sangha, located in Boise, practices in the Buddhist tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh (Thây). We have weekly meeting times and meet one day a month for a Day of Mindfulness (DOM).

 

One of the best known and most respected Zen masters in the world today, poet, and peace and human rights activist, Thich Nhat Hanh (called Thây by his students) has led an extraordinary life.
