Join Our Supportive Sangha Community in Granada Hills

Start Where You AreThe Center for Spiritual Living Granada Hills offers ongoing 6-week Wednesday morning Sangha programs from 9:30 AM to noon. The Sangha is one of our most popular classes, and the next one starts on April 15, 2015.

“Dharma is great compassion, understanding, and love. To realize these qualities, we need a sangha… When a sangha shines its light on our personal views, we see more clearly. In the sangha, we won’t fall into negative habit patterns.”

— Thich Nhat Hahn

Join us at the Sangha for a great learning opportunity in a loving and supportive community facilitated by Reverend Jeanne Hoffman. Our learning and discussion topic for this next 6-week program is based on the book Start Where You Are by the American Buddhist teacher, author, nun and mother, Pema Chodron. You can order one from the Center in advance or purchase it used online.

Sangha members are required to attend the first meeting – the class is closed after the first class so that the intimacy the group begins with will not be interrupted. To RSVP, call Marlene at the Center office (818-363-8136) to reserve your spot and order your book so that there are enough materials for everyone.

See you at the Sangha!
