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.

The Sangha meets every Sunday evening from
5:30 P.M. – 7:00 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 meet at 4:00 P.M.


Mindful Breath Sangha welcomes all who wish to attend. Whatever your religion, philosophy, or spiritual path, your presence is welcomed.

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