Recurring Event Virtual Just This Sangha

Virtual Just This Sangha

Just This Sangha meets virtually (via Zoom) nearly every Friday evening from 6:00 to 7:30 for silent meditation and sharing of our practice experience.  From a Buddhist, particularly Zen, perspective, we focus on bringing practice to daily life; exploring letting go of our usual habitual reactivity and opening to ourselves and others as we actually are.  Not a drop-in group, we do welcome potentially new members to join us for a few sessions to see if the group is a good fit.  Contact Tom Tanguay at Thisjustthis@gmail.com for more information.

CUUPS Imbolc Ritual

Parish Hall 25 South Main Street, Middleborough, Massachusetts
