The Mindfulness Practice Community of Houston meets on Sunday evenings from 5:30 - 7:30 PM at 1712 Fairview (rear building, please enter through the courtyard door). Our usual program consists of an hour of sitting and walking meditation, chanting and incense offering, and the program for the evening.
In the spirit of mindfulness, please arrive in time to be seated before the first period of meditation begins at 5:30 PM.
Out of respect for those with sensitivities, please do not wear fragrance.
