There is no distinction between the one who gives, the one who receives, and the gift itself.
— THICH NHAT HANH

The offering of mindfulness teachings, and group facilitation are guided by the ancient Buddhist principle known as Dana or generosity. Dana has supported the teaching of mindfulness over thousands of years and comes from the heart. 

Those who participate in sangha contribute what they can, donations help to offset operational costs, making it possible for this group to be sustained.  We collect Dana after every sitting.  

You can also send a check or make a one time or an ongoing donation online.
