Supporting Our Sangha
Practicing Generosity

Dana, the practice of generosity, arises naturally from a deep desire to see the Dharma flourish in our own lives and in the lives of others and in the world. This is why a Dana bowl is available at all our gatherings, that we may support your practice of Dana. As the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha begin to make a home in our hearts, we quite naturally want to share ourselves with our community of practice.  This sharing comes in many forms -- we show up early to help set up the Sangha space, we volunteer to host a day of mindfulness at our home, we give the Sangha money to help support the continued presence of our community in the world.  Since the first Dharma talk was given by Shakyamuni Buddha, hearts have been touched and generosity of spirit has blossomed.  

We invite you to give generously to Beginners Mind Sangha. As stewards of Beginners Mind Sangha, members of the Practice Council contribute their time and energy to make decisions that bring strength, vitality and skill to our Sangha.  We heartily appreciate your generous contributions.
