Mindfulness Community of Hampton Roads

The Mindfulness Community of Hampton Roads was founded in May 1992. Its mission is to provide a sangha, or community, to support those who practice Buddhism in Norfolk and elsewhere in Hampton Roads. Although formation of the Mindfulness Community of Hampton Roads was inspired by the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, it became evident soon after its inception that there was a need to expand its scope to embrace the support of practitioners from all Buddhist traditions, as well as those who practice secular mindfulness and have an interest in Buddhism. 

The sangha was on hiatus due to COVID-19 protocols, but is now meeting again. All are welcome to join us in our practice, including beginners. We meet on the first and third Sunday (10:30AM-12:30PM) of each month. Although basic meditation instruction is available for beginners, many in our group have received meditation instruction in some other context.

 “A sangha is a community of resistance, resisting the speed, violence, and unwholesome ways of living that are prevalent in our society… A good sangha can lead in the direction of harmony and awareness.”  — Thich Nhat Hanh
