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.

The songs used during the Eucharistic services and other services are rich in spirituality and are able to minister to the soul. It is a time of joy and expression of the wonders of God.

The purpose of the Udumbara Sangha is to express, make accessible, and embody the wisdom compassion of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Our center is a welcoming and vibrant community of Buddhist practitioners who are supportive of all Buddhist schools and particularly devoted to the practice of Zen. We are dedicated to the teaching of original enlightenment and to the liberation of flowering of all beings.

Udumbara Sangha acknowledges and values equally the expression of practice in formal settings and in daily life: thus we affirm both lay and monastic practice as expressions of the bodhisattva path.

Welcome to the Unitarian Church of Evanston, a community of free faith and theological diversity. Our faith tradition is Unitarian Universalist. On any given Sunday you’ll meet friends who find primary inspiration in a traditional faith (including, but not limited to, Christian, Jewish, Religious Humanist, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, or Earth-centered) or in some combination that guides them on their life journeys.

We have radical roots and a history as self-motivated spiritual people: we think for ourselves and recognize that life experience influences our beliefs more than anything.
