Unitarian Universalist (UU) experience with Buddhism is rich and varied. We find inspiration in stories from Buddhist traditions, Buddhist meditation practices, and contemporary teachers like Sharon Salzberg and Thích Nhất Hạnh. Many congregations have Buddhist meditation groups; our denomination has over 100 local UU sanghas. On September 10th, First Unitarian Church will be starting our own Buddhist mindfulness practice group, Awakening Heart Sangha, in the tradition of Thích Nhất Hạnh. In this service, we will explore the joys and benefits of Sangha.
