The Mindfulness Practice Community of Houston is a community of lay practitioners inspired by the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh (Plum Village). The community, formed originally under the name Dharma Rain, was founded in January 1997 by three members of the Order of Interbeing, (Tiep Hien Order.) The purpose of the Sangha (a Sanskrit word for community) is to support each other in learning to live with awareness.
Everyone who comes to practice with us is a member of the Sangha. Our community welcomes everyone who wishes to learn the art of meditation and mindful living regardless of race, ethnic or cultural origin, gender, religious practice, or sexual orientation.
