Wild Rose Sangha Update

Plum Village in the Fog D.Keller

Dear gentle friends, dear community, dear Thay,

Like a lotus in muddy water the Wild Rose Sangha is continuing our practice of love and understanding together.  We are here for you in mindfulness although we may not be there in person. We are building an on-line sangha that you can participate in by phone or computer.  

We are also coming together to care for each other in practical ways.  Members of our community are working on creative ways to continue to build sangha and we hope you will practice with us.  Meanwhile our practice and our awakened mind has not changed. The Dharma has always been free and it continues to be free.  Please continue breathing and coming home. We are embracing our lives as one.

With smiles of simple joy,
The Wild Rose Sangha Facilitator Group

Directions on how to access our online Sangha will be sent via our list-serve. To join our list-serve please subscribe here

Wildrose COVID-19 Practice Update

Tracey will offer a modified sangha practice this Monday March 16th which will consist of sitting, a brief talk by Tracey, sharing joys and dedication of merit. No tea. Following this Monday’s practice we will be using online methods to hold sangha until at least April. The Sangha is currently working to implement this online system. We will provide updates on how we plan to do this on the website.

Please be aware of the following conditions of practice outlined by Tracey for practice this Monday eve

a) Those who are sick or just returned from international travel must refrain from attending.

b) Everyone who attends must write their name and phone number on a list (in case someone gets sick we can provide this to health authorities)

c) The group will sit at a greater distance and people are invited to hand sanitize and wash hands prior to sangha.
