Redding’s River Oak Sangha is showing the film Walk With Me about Zen Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh and Plum Village on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 7 p.m. in the Sanctuary of the Center for Spiritual Living. The film will be preceded by a social and coffee gathering at 6:30 p.m. in the Social Hall of CSL with a discussion time afterward. Admission for the film is $10 per person. This is a fundraiser with the Sangha to support their journeys on the spiritual path.

The film is about a community of Zen Buddhist monks and nuns who have dedicated their lives to mastering the art of mindfulness under the wisdom ways of Thich Nhat Hanh.

River Oak Sangha meets Wednesdays from 6:30-8 p.m in the Meditation Pavilion art Center for Spiritual Living to practice mindfulness in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. They welcome everyone with an interest in mindfulness practice, including first-time visitors and guests.

A sangha is a community that supports people in the practice of meditation, ethical living and the development of wisdom. They aspire to apply mindfulness to everyday life while balancing practice and study. Such a path can decrease suffering, increase happiness and ultimately lead to the natural development of compassion and wisdom.

There is no dogma to believe in. Instead, practicing mindfulness with a sangha is an opportunity to explore our own life experiences using the tools of meditation and reflection in the context of a supportive community of fellow practitioners.

River Oak Sangha includes Buddhists and non-Buddhists. For more information, please contact Alexa Singer-Telles at 530-246-8317.
