May the merits of this practice,
benefit all beings
and bring peace. 

During this time of the pandemic, the River Oak Sangha is meeting via Zoom on Wednesday evenings 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., roughly following the same format as our pre-pandemic Wednesday evening gatherings.  If you have already signed up to receive River Oak Sangha emails you will be contacted with Zoom Invitations that allow you to join these online meetings.

The River Oak Sangha welcomes everyone with an interest in mindfulness practice, including first-time visitors and guests.  A sangha is a community that supports people in the practice of meditation, ethical living and the development of wisdom.  We aspire to apply mindfulness to everyday life while balancing practice and study.  Such a path can decrease suffering, increase happiness, and ultimately lead to the natural development of compassion and wisdom. 

There is no dogma to believe in.  Instead, practicing mindfulness with a sangha is an opportunity to explore our own life experiences using the tools of meditation and reflection in the context of a supportive community of fellow practitioners.

Our sangha includes non-Buddhists and Buddhists.  All who wish to experience the benefits of meditation and mindfulness are welcome to practice with us.  It is not necessary to be a Buddhist to benefit from mindfulness practices.
