**Update 3/13/2020: Temporarily Moving to Online Sangha**
After mindful reflection on the current situation in Houston and around the country with regard to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Mindfulness Practice Community of Houston has decided to suspend our in-person meetings until further notice. We wish to contribute in whatever way we can to the well-being of all, and social distancing is recommended by health experts as a major contributor to the slowing of the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
To maintain connection and community during this time, we will meet online through Zoom on Sundays, at 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM. We will open with a short introduction, followed by 20 minutes of meditation, then the program presentation, and close with Dharma sharing. The entire time together will last for approximately 1.5 hours.

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.
