Sangha in the South US

VastmindVastmind Memphis, TN Veteran

Just wanted to put an invitation out there..... There is a group of us that travels to a monastery here in the Southern US.

It's located in Batesville, MS. It's centrally between TN, MS and AR. It's in the Zen tradition and is a meditation practice center ran by TNH.
