Heart of the Blue Ridge Sangha*
“Peace is all around us — in the world and in nature — and within us — in our bodies and our spirits. Once we learn to touch this peace, we will be healed and transformed. It is not a matter of faith; it is a matter of practice. We need only to find ways to bring our body and mind back to the present moment so we can touch what is refreshing, healing, and wondrous.”
~Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh
Who we are…
We are a community of practitioners inspired by the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, who come together to meditate and share the practices of mindful living. Mindfulness is our capacity to be fully present in our own lives, to be more fully aware of what we are doing as we are doing it. As we develop our awareness, an inner stillness naturally grows, lowering our fear and calming our anxiety. Our community comes together to sit quietly in meditation and to learn other mindfulness practices.
Practicing with Heart of the Blue Ridge Sangha…
Our regular practice includes a weekly sitting each Sunday morning at The Yoga Center in Roanoke, from 9:15 until 10:40 a.m. and an evening meeting on the First and Third Thursday of each month at Saint Peter’s-In-The-Mountains, 65 Rock Ridge Road in Callaway, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. We are always happy to welcome newcomers. Each one of us brings our unique practice and life experiences to the Sangha, and our diversity of interests and perspectives enriches us. Basic meditation instruction and introduction to mindfulness practices may be scheduled (see contact information below).
The Yoga Center is located in historic Grandin Village
1316 B Grandin Road, above Grace’s Place Pizzeria
