Our Mission

The mission of Beginners Mind Sangha is to support and nuture the community of people who practice mindfulness and meditation inspired by the Buddha Dharma.  We follow the tradition of Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh who reminds us often that liberation from suffering and awakening to ease and joy are only available in the present moment. We offer activities that encourage us to live fully in the here and now, and that help to deepen our understanding and capacity for love and compassion.  It is our sincere wish that living in this manner will reduce suffering for ourselves and for all beings.
