Common Ground Meditation Center

Common Ground is a community meditation center dedicated to the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness meditation is the practice of waking up to the present moment and learning to be open and at ease with the unfolding conditions of life. With practice, mindfulness reveals deep wisdom, compassion, and intimacy with all things. | Read the letter from our leaders responding to the killing of George Floyd. | Mark and Shelly continue to respond to everything moving in our hearts and communities at this time in their dharma talks.
