Meditation Opportunities

For many years YoMo hosted Wednesday evening meditation.  Here are some meditation groups that you can join

Ongoing: Lead by members of the Ukiah Welcome Home Sangha (studying the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh).  Information about when and where our meditation group is meeting, using social distancing, can be found at:  Welcome Home Zen Meditation Meetup

Ongoing: Teachings by the Monks of Abhayagiri Monastery (Thai Forest Tradition). As an alternative, the monks are live-streaming their regular 7:00 pm evening meditation programs, offered most days of the week via their YouTube channel. The evening begins with chanting, followed by a period of silent meditation, and ending with chanting. Twice a week, on Saturday and the lunar quarter day, the monastery’s evening program also includes a talk (beginning around 8 pm) by one of the senior monks. Please join the monks from the comfort of your home and continue to tap in to this wonderful local Dharma resource.
To join the live stream, go to: https://youtube.com/c/AbhayagiriBuddhistMonastery
To follow along to the chanting, you can find an online copy of the chanting books at:

Ongoing: Sugarplum Sangha, a lay community in the Thich Nhat Hanh tradition located at Mariposa (on Low Gap Road, Ukiah):  Sugarplum Sangha, a residential practice center in the Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism, offers an evening of chanting, meditation, and dharma sharing and occasional all-day Zoom retreats.  www.sugarplumsangha.org/online-sangha
