Breathe, you are online. 

Welcome to the Winding Path Sangha in Iowa City, Iowa, founded in the Plum Village tradition of Vietnamese teacher Thích Nhất Hạnh, or 'Thay', in 2016. 

We know you are there and we are happy. 


Mini-Day of Mindfulness Sunday, June 25: From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, June 25, please join Winding Path Sangha for a half day of mindfulness at the Coralville home of Sangha member Brian Glidewell. This will be followed by an informal shared lunch for those who wish to stay a while and socialize. Led by Winding Path and Order of Interbeing member Jan Goss and other facilitators, the time together will include guided, silent, and walking meditations; a short reading; Dharma sharing; and tea meditation. Space is limited to about 10 people, so please RSVP only if you are certain you can attend. While there is no cost, dana (a free-will offering) will be accepted and will be given to the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation to continue Thay's work. Some meditation cushions will be available, but please feel free to bring your own if you wish. To RSVP, please email Jan Goss at Additional details will be sent soon to those who RSVP.
