Join us for a Morning of Mindfulness with Sister Ocean on Saturday, July 29, at 9:00 am.

Sister Ocean is a Buddhist nun ordained in the Plum Village tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.  Originally from Ontario, Canada, she has been living at Blue Cliff Monastery in upstate New York.  She is a musician and a poet, and has been writing the Mindful Living series for Buddhist Door Global since 2013.  She is also a core member of a new Sangha in the Plum Village tradition – ARISE: Awakening through Race, Intersectionality, and Social Equity.  She is particularly interested in making the connection between the dharma, psychology and social transformation.

Please arrive and settle at 8:50 am.

Open and welcoming to all.



Sangha Is The Key

"It is difficult to make change alone. In the Sangha--the community of people who share the path of spiritual practice--there is a powerful collective energy of mindfulness and concentration. It cam help us make a breakthrough; it ignites our insight.
