What is the Full Moon Sangha?

The Full Moon Sangha is a one-hour guided meditation gathering led by Peter Bolland that meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Monday of each month at Vision: A Center for Spiritual Living.

Sangha means community in Sanskrit. And after our 16 month hiatus, we are so grateful to be able to once again gather together to practice the ancient art and science of meditation. Designed for beginners and experienced meditators alike, our approach to meditation is simple, clear, accessible, and open-hearted. Nothing fancy, just a bedrock trust that the wisdom within each of us arises best when we learn how to be still.

For the well-being of the most vulnerable among us, we humbly ask that all attendees be fully vaccinated. If you are medically prohibited from vaccination, or have simply chosen to not get vaccinated, please take advantage of our livestream and meditate with us from home. Thank you!

Cancel Culture vs. Counsel Culture: Finding the Road to Redemption

Is it o.k. to enjoy Woody Allen movies? Do a President’s moral indiscretions erase their political accomplishments? Does anyone’s decades-old racist Tweet tarnish them for life? Or do those behaviors get them “cancelled?” Join Congressional candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar and philosophy professor Peter Bolland for an on-stage exploration of the dynamics of redemption. What if it is possible to heal the wounds you’ve caused and rebuild trust? What do the world’s wisdom traditions suggest as concrete steps toward authentic reconciliation?

The Wisdom of Thomas Merton

 —  —

Zoom Webinar Through San Diego Oasis

20th century Christian mystic Thomas Merton (1915-1968) left an indelible mark on the spiritual landscape both within his tradition and all around the world. A Trappist monk, Merton struck a delicate balance between the contemplative life and the New York Times bestsellers list. His autobiography The Seven Storey Mountain became one of the most widely read and influential books of the 20th century. And in the 1960s he became, in Daniel Berrigan’s words, “the conscience of the peace movement.” His intensive study of Eastern philosophy, especially Buddhism, while initially troubling to many of his Catholic followers, became a blueprint for how to build meaningful dialogue between religious traditions. Join us as we explore Merton’s life and teachings. (60 minute lecture, 30 minute Q&A) $15
