Opportunities to practice and serve

Welcome to all those who want to help the Sangha.

To ensure the smooth running of the activities of the Sangha and its development, there is much to do. Every thing that must be done is an opportunity to practice, an opportunity to give back to the Sangha, to make service in Mindfulness. There is no chore and no task. Only opportunities to practice and serve.

Under the responsibility of the Board of Directors and the Council of Teachers, you can be part of the Caretaking Council of the Sangha to offer assistance, take a training if necessary, in order to support areas of righteous actions following:

Sitting and watching our breath is a wonderful practice, but it is not enough. For transformation to take part, we have to practice mindfulness all day long, not just on our meditation cushion.
