"A sangha is a community of friends practicing the dharma together in order to bring about and to maintain awareness. The essence of a sangha is awareness, understanding, acceptance, harmony and love. It is well worth investing in a Sangha. If you sow seeds in arid land, few seeds will sprout. But if you select a fertile field and invest your wonderful seeds in it, the harvest will be bountiful. Building a Sangha, supporting a Sangha, being with a Sangha, receiving the support and guidance of a Sangha is the practice. We have individual eyes and Sangha eyes. When a Sangha shines its light on our personal views, we see more clearly. In the Sangha, we won't fall into negative habit patterns. Stick to your Sangha. Take refuge in the Sangha, and you'll have the wisdom and support you need." - Thich Nhat Hanh
The Inner Fields sangha is a small but diverse, multi-lineage group who meet monthly to practice meditation together. By meeting regularly we aim to offer each other encouragement, inspiration, support and refuge in our personal commitments to an ethical, spiritual life. Silent meditation practice is followed by dharma reflection, readings, discussion and questions prompted by a monthly theme or topic. Beginners and guests are always welcome. Simply add their names to your RSVP.
