Peace in oneself,
peace in the world
Our mission is to develop a community that roots the life of its individuals and the collective in mindfulness and cultivates meaningful friendships with ourselves, each other, and the earth. By regularly gathering for meditation, work, service, study, and play, we engage in community building and self-awareness practices as taught by the Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism while embracing wisdom from a diversity of traditions. With the Five Mindfulness Trainings as our guide, we aspire to embody joy, kindness, compassion, and peace as an offering to society.
Our Core Commitments
The Sugarplum Sangha envisions a world where all beings are valued and honored. In loving, affirming community, we strive to hold the joy and suffering of ourselves and others, and to tend the human needs for meaningful work, play, rest, communion, and understanding.
