Meditation and Mindfulness Practice
Join us for a donation-based, weekly practice of meditation, learning and discussion explicitly open to people of all ages, colors, gender/sexual orientations, shapes sizes and incomes. No experience needed! Based in the tradition of Zen Master and activist Thich Nhat Hanh. Facilitated by members of Many Faces Sangha, including Samantha Rise Robeson and Kim Fleisher. Please arrive on time, since the outside door to the studio often locks right at 7:30pm.
Many Faces Sangha is a mindfulness practice group in West Philadelphia based in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and the desire of MLK to create a “beloved community.” It’s our desire to have a sangha (spiritual community) reflective of our city’s many faces, with the knowing that at this time in history, as Thich Nhat Hanh says, “One buddha is not enough.” Today’s buddhas and bodhisattvas don’t only look like the historical ‘classic’ buddha, they look like us.
