Members and Friends of the Wet Mountain Sangha

For those who have been looking for a practice opportunity but are burdened with the hustle-and-bustle of the daily-grind schedule, Wet Mountain Sangha is expanding Open Hall to include Tuesday mornings. Morning meditation has been a foundation for daily practice across traditions and it is with this spirit that WMS invites anyone and everyone to take up the path and join us at the Zendo (for open hall) from 6:30 am- to 7:30 am at the CIP. Arrive a little early if you wish for orientation or to help with the set up. It is okay to quietly arrive or leave at 7:00.
