Sangha at WORD Jersey City

"A sangha is a community of friends practicing the dharma together in order to bring about and to maintain awareness." -- Thich Nhat Hanh.

In a nutshell, that's what this book group aims to do: to form a sangha where we help each other along the path of enlightment, awareness, mindfulness, Nirvana, or however you may call it. Each month we'll discuss a book on Buddhism, meditation, and/or mindfulness. The goal is to cast a wide net across these ancient practices, approaching the path at different angles, and learning how to incorporate them into our daily lives.

Join Lorenzo and friends every fourth Thursday of the month 6:00pm-7:00pm. And don't forget! All books are 10 percent off at WORD the month before discussion.
