Center's Description
The Awakening Heart Sangha is a group of people dedicated to the Buddhist practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the process of awakening to each moment so that we might experience life in deeper and more meaningful ways. If we can be present in each moment, we will have the ability to see things as they really are, which in turn will water the seeds of joy and peace within us. The primary instrument used to cultivate mindfulness is the simple, yet profound practice of following our breath.

There are no obligations for participating in our weekly sessions. You need not be a Buddhist and there are no expectations for attendance. Presence of each participant is regarded as a gift to the Sangha, for which it is grateful. The Awakening Heart Sangha offers those interested in mindful living an opportunity to deep their practice through meditation, mindful discussion and listening, and interaction with other practitioners.

The Awakening Heart Sangha meets every Monday at 7 p.m. at The Center in Bartlett, IL.

Each meeting consists of an hour of meditation - combining both sitting and walking meditation in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. We follow this hour of meditation with a Dharma discussion. For more information on the format, please see the detailed description.
