**Time Change Announcement: Beginning September 10, 2023 the MPCH Sunday meetings will be held from 4:00 - 6:00 PM. We invite you to arrive in time to be settled for meditation to begin at 4:00pm **
Sunday Evening Meditation 4:00-6:00pm: Our Sunday evening programs are returning to our original two hour format which includes sitting and walking meditation for the first hour, a short break, and Dharma presentation and sharing during the second hour.
Directions to join us in person: We meet in the chapel of the Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church, 2025 W 11th St, at the intersection with T C Jester, and right next to the White Oak Bayou Greenway. The outside door leading to the chapel is on the east side (bayou side) of the main sanctuary. There is a small parking lot on that side of the church as well. If you park in the main lot on the west side of the church, you will need to walk around to the chapel door or, from the main (west) lot you can drive around the back of the complex to the lot near the chapel entrance. The rest of the church will be locked, and there is no access other than the outside door nearest the chapel.
Health guidelines: Masks are not required, but you are welcome to wear one. If you are not feeling well, please stay at home. You are welcome to explore online sangha gatherings at Plumline.org

Life is filled with suffering and also with many wonders. To touch life deeply, we practice meditation and mindful living to be fully present to what is available in the present moment. This we do through conscious breathing; "breathing in, I know I am breathing in, breathing out, I know I am breathing out". Conscious breathing is the key to uniting body and mind and bringing the energy of mindfulness into each moment of our everyday life. With our conscious breathing, we practice sitting meditation, walking meditation, bowing, chanting, tea meditation, and dharma discussions. In this way, we become more alive and more present to what we are doing and to those with whom we are sharing our time. We learn how to extend our practice into our daily lives to protect ourselves and those around us.
Practice of Generosity
To meet the needs for contribution and sustainability, the Sangha accepts donations from its members, visitors, and community. We suggest a monthly $30 donation from regular members and accept any amount you joyfully give. We are committed to include everyone regardless of financial means.
