Spiritual Director: Zen Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh  
Notes and Events:

The Green Island Sangha is inspired by the teachings and practice of Vietnamese Zen Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh; we belong to the international Sangha which he founded: the Order of Interbeing, a "fourfold community" of lay women and men, nuns and monks. We are a grassroots Sangha, beginners and more experienced practitioners learning from and supporting one other on the path of awakening. We are also a part of The Community of Mindfulness New York Metro.

Our aspiration is to bring mindfulness, concentration, and insight to daily living. During our sessions, we apply the practice of conscious breathing to sitting and walking, as well as communicating with compassionate listening and loving speech. Our gatherings also reflect the values of openness. For example, many members continue to participate within other religious or ethical traditions. We are a Sangha of practitioners from the entire length and breath of Long Island and consider ourselves to be part of a world wide Sangha. Beginners are welcome.

Spiritual Director: Reverend Upananda T Dedunupitiye  Email  
Notes and Events:

The Habitat of Buddha Yoga, Inc (HBY) adheres to the Buddha’s teaching that one does not have to be initiated or baptized as a Buddhist in order to be a Buddhist. While one adheres to one’s religious/spiritual upbringing one has acquired since birth, one must be able to respect all the religions; one can be a Buddhist, as one embark upon and continue a life-long process of self-transformation through Buddha Yoga (=mental cultivation) which is specifically known as “Vipassana” (Insight) meditation only found in the Buddha’s Teaching. Just as different rivers flowing from different directions become one on emptying themselves into the ocean, people from different religio-cultural backgrounds become one, as they “sit together” for self-transformation, whose ultimate step is “Absolute Awakening” (Nirvana). Unless Awakening of the moment is achieved in daily life, Nirvana will only be a dream or fantasy. The HBY welcomes people from all walks of life and different religio-cultural backgrounds to congregate together and journey into the mind wherein lays the potential of Nirvana, or Buddha Nature. The Buddha Nature remains hindered by fermentations gradually built up, as life is lived in a stressful and disharmonious way. Buddha’s Teaching is not only for Buddhists but also for all beings. The HBY wishes you a life full of wellness, happiness and peace.

Notes and Events:

At this time, our Community is a practice group with no affiliated teachers; we draw teachings in through readings and audio recordings, and encourage members to attend retreats and dharma talks at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and various other places where teachings are being offered by recognized teachers of the dharma.

At our weekly Tuesday evening sitting meditation practice, both experienced meditators and persons new to meditation are warmly welcome.  We practice sitting meditation for 30 minutes. Depending on the week, we either read aloud for 20 - 25 minutes, or (on the second and fourth weeks), we listen to a recording of a dharma talk (roughly one hour long).   The readings and the recorded dharma talks are by various dharma teachers from the Insight and Theravada traditions, such as Joseph Goldstein, Larry Rosenberg, Ajahn Sumedho, and Sharon Salzberg.  We leave a few minutes after the reading/talk for brief discussion. 

For anyone not familiar with Insight Meditation (Vipassana meditation), optional brief instruction is provided at 7:10 PM before the Tuesday evening sitting. 

On the third Tuesday of each month, an addition 30 minute sitting period follows the dharma reading; participants are welcome to stay for this or leave quietly before it begins.

Please make an effort to arrive on time.  If you do arrive late, please enter quietly, find a seat (a cushion or chair), and join us in practice.

For those who have some meditation experience, possibly including some experience with intensive silent retreats, we also have First Sunday Extended Practice, a monthly half- day of silent sitting and walking meditation.  Please see the event pages for more information.

We look forward, in the future, to welcoming experienced teachers of the dharma to come and offer dharma talks.
