thay-effectThe Ottawa Pagoda Sangha is a mindfulness practice group located in Ottawa. We come together to support each other on the path of practice following the Buddhist teachings of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Our Sangha’s senior dharma teacher is Vinh Nguyen (Chan Ngo), who was ordained as a member of the Order of Interbeing in 1987 and received the Lamp Transmission from Thich Nhat Hanh in Plum Village in 1994. In 2014 three more dharma teachers from our Sangha, Andre Vellino, Mihaela Andronic, and Laureen Osborne received the Lamp Transmission from Thich Nhat Hanh in Plum Village.

Please Note: Please note that The Church of the Ascension is undergoing renovations and will be closed at least until August 12th. Our meditation sessions will likely begin again on August 12th and continue on into December uninterrupted. Please check the schedule again on August 5th.

Newcomers to our Sangha, please read the Practices page and brochure about our Sangha. Please consult the new current schedule for details.

The Pagoda Sangha has a Google Groups mailing list to which only attendees to the group will be added. Please send a blank email to ottawapagodasangha+subscribe@googlegroups.com to request membership.
