About the event

The Five Mindfulness Trainings represent a Buddhist vision for a global spirituality and ethic. They are a concrete expression of the Buddha's teachings on the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path, the path of right understanding and true love, leading to healing, transformation, and happiness for ourselves and for the world.

Those who take the Five Mindfulness Trainings in the Plum Village tradition commit to reciting them regularly with a Sangha so that their study and practice of them can deepen day by day. If you've haven't received the Mindfulness Trainings, the ceremony is still an opportunity to touch in with your aspirations and to be in the presence of friends supporting you in your mindfulness practice. After the ceremony, we have the special opportunity to share our practice with each other in deep listening and loving speech.

If this is your first time practicing with Sugarplum Sangha, please plan on arriving by 6:30pm for introductions and please visit our page on practicing with resilience
