EMPOWERMENT THROUGH SPIRITUAL FRIENDSHIP - THE SANGHA
Our Theme : Taking in and offering each other the deep companionship and joy of community - Sangha. Through the joy of practicing deeply together we see how we can be empowered and empower others through our relationship with Sangha .
The Buddha praised spiritual friendship as one of the most important aspects of the spiritual life. Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as many other enlightened teachers of today speak of the next great awakening for humankind manifesting not through one enlightened being but through the awakened living of a whole community.
In our tradition we treasure the spiritual community - the Sangha for our support and enrich-ment. We take time to enjoy and grow our connections and explore the power of ‘Sangha’ in the Plum Village tradition and what that means for us in todays world.
We practice and we play. We rest and nourish ourselves in nature and togetherness.
