Santa Fe Vipassana Sangha presents mindfulness for the whole family!

Practicing mindfulness in community (sangha) helps to reduce stress and reset our intentions. Kids (generally ages 4-12)  join seasoned teachers in a separate space to enjoy learning about mindfulness through friendly activities such as snacking, moving, and crafting. At the same time, parents fine tune their imperfect meditation practices, commiserate on their imperfect parenting, and enjoy quality down time aimed at helping us recover our true inspiration and compassionate relationship skills. 

Please note that "parents" and "family" are defined in the broadest terms, anybody who is, or ever has been, in any kind of a caretaking relationship is invited to participate! You do not have to bring kids to join in the adult practice.

Donations (Dana) gladly accepted.

No prior registration required. Please send an email to hello@familysangha.org to be added to the monthly online Paperless Post invitation list.

No experience necessary, everybody is welcome!

The mPEAK program enhances the human capacity of mindfulness through established and empirically supported practices and exercises, tailored to fit the needs and desires of the team, organization or individual.

An engaging talk with William Powers from his new book: Dispatches from the Sweet Life

An engaging talk with William Powers from his new book: Dispatches from the Sweet Life

The Santa Fe Center for Mindfulness is happy to co-host William Powers, author of the "green living" bestseller Twelve by Twelve and New Slow City, will read from his new book, Dispatches from the Sweet Life, followed by a discussion and  book signing at Collected Works Bookstore.

Dispatches from the Sweet Life: One Family, Five Acres, and A Community's Quest to Reinvent the World (September, 2018)

 Many people fantasize about dramatically changing their lives — living in accordance with their ideals rather than the exigencies of job, bills, and possessions. William Powers actually does it. In his first book, Twelve by Twelve, Powers lived in an off-grid tiny house in rural North Carolina. In New Slow City, he and his wife, Melissa, inhabited a Manhattan micro-apartment in search of slow in the fastest city in the world. Here, the couple, with baby in tow, search for balance, humanity, and happiness in Suraqueta, Bolivia. They build an adobe house beside a prolific orchard and organic garden and weave their life into the community of permaculturists, bio-builders, beer brewers, artists, and creative businesspeople. Can this transition town succeed in the face of encroaching North American capitalism, and can Powers and the other settlers find the balance they’re seeking? Dispatches from the Sweet Life is compelling, thought-provoking, and, no matter the outcome, inspirational.
