Welcome to Waves and Water Sangha


Waves and Water Sangha Vancouver is a community of practice in the engaged Buddhist tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. We gather every Thursday evening from 6:50 pm to 9:00 pm. In the first hour we practice sitting and walking meditation. In the second hour we have a program of study and practice that follows a particular pattern.

First Thursdays of each month, we recite and reflect on the Mindfulness Trainings. Second Thursdays we engage in Dharma study. Third Thursdays we practice with a Sutra Service. Fourth Thursdays we read from and discuss a book from the Plum Village tradition. Fifth Thursdays we practice with three periods of sitting and walking and tea.

Please follow this Thursday evening link to find out more about practicing with Waves and Water Sangha. We are happy to answer any questions [wwsangha[at]gmail.com]!

We have regular Days of Mindfulness and Days of Dharma Study often with members of other Sanghas in our tradition. A Sangha Caretaking Council has been established and our practice together is loving and full of kindness.

We take refuge in our own awakened nature, in the teachings and in each other. Please join us! Contact a member of the Caretaking Council for more information.
