Sangha Members Deepen Their Practice

Some of the 42 people who received transmission of
the 5 Mindfulness Trainings on March 23 
The Maine sangha, the community that lives in harmony and awareness, blossoms like a lotus. We had a wonderful transmission ceremony for the Five Mindfulness Trainings at the Day of Mindfulness with Joanne Friday in Augusta on Saturday.

The day included  a dharma talk and question and answer period from Joanne, mindful eating of our lunch in noble silence with a children's table, a mindful walk outside, and dharma sharing in the closing circle.
