Mindful Breath Sangha was founded in November, 2011, by members of the Athens/Clarke/Oconee Communities who wanted to further their studies and practice in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen master, poet, and peace activist.  This is a practice of engaged Buddhism and mindfulness* in everyday life that works to show us the connection between deep personal peace and peace on earth.

Beginning October 1st, 2023 Meetings will be held at the

The Griffin-DuBose Healing Lodge 240 Talmadge Drive Athens.

The Sangha previously met every Sunday at Ansonborough Townhouse Complex Club House:  1040 Gaines School Road Athens, Georgia, from 5:00 P.M. – 6:30 P.M. for sitting meditation, walking meditation, and a dharma lesson. Each week the leadership of the Sangha rotates among members.

Once a month we gather at the home of one of our members for a vegetarian pot luck dinner. On these occasions, we begin at 4:30 P.M.

Mindful Breath Sangha welcomes all who wish to attend. Whatever your religion, philosophy, or spiritual path, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, or country of origin, your presence is welcomed.

 *Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment.
