Sangha: Festival of Medicine

“The Buddha, Shakyamuni, our teacher, predicted that the next Buddha would be Maitreya, the Buddha of love…. It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community. A community practicing understanding and loving kindness. A community practicing mindful living.
The practice can be carried out as a group, as a city, as a nation.”
—Thich Nhat Hanh, “The Next Buddha May Be A Sangha” in Inquiring Mind journal, Spring 1994.

Within this three to four day gathering I wish to cultivate a community sharing information, reminders, and a call to awakening. Through the sharing of medicine we remind each and every
single person how beautiful we really are. We care for our home, each other, and our conscious awaking.

This particular Sangha focuses on medicine through the light of Kosha. Kosha is the multi-integrated layers of a human being. Anna (physical being), Pranna (energy being), Manna (the mind), Vigna (intuitive wisdom), and Annanda (connection to source).

Energetic presenters focus on Prana (breath), mudras, Chinese medicine/chi, Doshas-Ayurveda, and herbal medicine.
Intellectual presenters focus on chakra, psychology, belief systems, meditation, cultural healing, and intentional community living.

On the final day we will unite all the Koshas to open up the creativity of dance and music, prayer, and the creation of Maitreya in all of us.
