The Good News of a Sangha, 3.25.2017
by Mark Chmiel
Five years ago today, Jenn Reyes Lay and I started a St. Louis sangha in the lineage of Thich Nhat Hanh. Annie Fitzgerald offered Sophia House on Gibson Avenue for our first gathering. Many wonderful people have shared the fruits of their practice with us during these 60 months: sitting, walking, singing, reciting the precepts, slowing down, studying the Heart and Diamond Sutras, offering retreats in the country, and facilitating mindful dinners.
As poet Diane di Prima wrote in her poem Life Chant, May it continue!
