6/7/2015 – Sangha

As our sangha met for the first time in our new location in the Lojong Space, Payton guided our reflections on Sangha, the sense of community that spreads from those seriously committed to the Buddhist path out to include all those we interact with, and finally to a sense of connection with the population of the world at large.  Serving to center the discussion were excerpts from  a talk by Oren Sofer on a visit to Vermont, titled “Sangha Refuge and the Relational Field of Practice.  This talk can be found at
