Please note that, because we’re having a Day of Mindfulness (DOM), there will not be a regular Quiet Mind Sangha the evening of Sunday May 15. The site for the DOM is handicapped-accessible. Hope to see you there.

Please join us for an outdoor Day of Mindfulness (DOM) in a beautiful spot off of Highway 14 south of Tijeras.
We will bring our own lunches, plus plenty of our own water and drinks. You can optionally also bring individually prepackaged items to share if desired. Also bring a hat, sunscreen, jacket, water, cup, cushion, blanket, beach towel, or yoga mat.
Directions: The Carolino Open Space is about a 30-minute drive East then South from central Albuquerque. From I-40, take exit 175 (Tijeras exit) south on Highway 337 (South 14). Proceed 9.3 miles and look for a sign to the Carolino Canyon Open Space on your left. Turn in and proceed to upper meeting area, then park in the lot.
Here are some of the possible activities for the day:
Sharing some favorite readings (bring your own)
Guided deep meditation
There is no fee, but there is a suggested donation of $10 to cover the cost of renting the facility. More information on the Quiet Mind Sangha is available at http://www.quietmindsangha.org
Looking forward to seeing those able to make it then.
A downloadable and printable flyer is attached below.
By consensus vote, the Sangha has agreed to change our meeting schedule to Sundays 4:00-5:30 p.m. during the winter and 5:00-6:30 pm during the summer. The changeovers will be at the Spring equinox (March 20, 2022) and the Fall equinox (September 22, 2022 ). Reminders of the meeting time changes will be included in the weekly emails around the times of the changeovers.
Until further notice, we continue to have hybrid meetings, both in person and by Zoom. To get the Zoom logon information, or to get on our weekly email list, you can contact any one of us.
Here is a list of planned topics for upcoming meetings through August. Please join us in person from 5-6:30 p.m. on Sunday evenings at the Albuquerque Zen Center, 2300 Garfield Ave. SE. We will be conducting hybrid (with Zoom) meetings for the time being, but may phase down the hybrid portion of the meetings to every other week before long. Please contact a Sangha member if you are interested in joining by Zoom. We encourage everyone to connect with a local Sangha in person.
