Stony Brook Sangha, a Buddhist community in the tradition of Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, began in December of 2010. It was started by members Rev. Linda Anderson and Ginger Williams. The Rev. Anderson notes that she is a member of the core community of Thich Nhat Hanh, called the Order of Interbeing, and has been part of a sangha since 2000, after returning from a sabbatical in Plum Village, his monastery in France. Buddhism, like Unitarian Universalism, holds the interconnectedness, or Interbeing, of all life to be paramount. Buddhism complements Unitarian Universalism, and vice versa.
The sangha has a number of Fellowship members in it, as well as people not acquainted with UUFSB. We meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Fellowship on Saturday mornings. All are welcome.
