Description

Lakeside Buddha Sangha is an Evanston-based meditation group which meets weekly to study and practice the Engaged Buddhism taught by Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
Weekly Meditation: Sunday evenings at First Congregational Church.
Doors open at 6:50 p.m.
Mediation begins, and doors are closed, at 7:15 p.m.  Participants are encouraged to arrive on time because of a building alarm system that goes into effect once the doors are shut.

Public Notes

Lakeside grew out of a four-day Chicago area retreat led by Thich Nhat Hanh in May 1991. Lakeside has been meeting ever since, offering sitting and walking meditation, Dharma Discussions, Days of Mindfulness and retreats in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.Participants come from all walks of life and diverse religious background. Lakeside members need not consider themselves Buddhist. Lakeside’s common denominator is an interest in mindfulness practices as taught by Thich Nhat Hanh, who encourages us to take up a life of awareness and healing, and to practice love and understanding in our communities.
