White Heron Sangha

South County Meditation Group

The South County Meditation Group meets in Oceano on Sunday mornings from 9:00am  ‑  10:15am for meditation and discussion in the Gudrun Hus Studio at Tierra Nueva Cohousing, adjacent to the town of Halcyon (see maps).

All levels of meditation experience are welcome, and it is not necessary to be a member of the White Heron Sangha to attend. If someone is new to meditation, and new to the group, the facilitator, or one of our group members, may guide the meditation for the first 10 minutes or so. Individualized meditation instruction is available upon request.

We are a peer-led group, in the tradition of kalyanamittata (alt: kalyana mitta; "admirable friendship", or "spiritual friends").

The general meeting format is: start with reading the Beginning Practice, meditate for 30 minutes, read the Ending Practice, then announcements and discussion.

We do not meet when there is a White Heron Sangha weekend retreat.

Generally, after the first sitting of each month, for those who are so inclined, we have a casual social time with tea and light refreshments.

Books that we have read recently include:
