Dear Friends,

Our practice is not difficult or complicated, but it is infinitely deep. We are guided on the path of practice by Thay and the Sangha. We learn and practice together to strengthen our mindfulness and to carry mindfulness with us through every moment of our lives. I will share the way I experience the Dharma with you and together we will practice applying it as our individual selves and as the Sangha body. I look forward to facilitating with you this coming Sunday.
