Bodhi Bodies

Bodhi Bodies Group

Our sangha’s Bodhi Bodies Group is a place for those of our sangha siblings who live with chronic physical challenges (e.g., chronic illness, chronic pain) and/or physical disabilities. 

We come together in Bodhi Bodies with the intention of creating a safe, non-judgmental, non-stigmatizing sangha space – free of unsolicited advice – where we can nourish joy and other wholesome seeds in ourselves. 

Bodhi Bodies is an affinity group. Affinity groups are for people with shared traits, experiences, or circumstances. These groups help us practice with particular conditions in our lives with the intention to nourish ourselves and to understand and transform suffering. We welcome all people with physical health challenges and/or physical disabilities to join our Bodhi Bodies Group. If you are not already a member of World Interbeing Sangha, please see our Practice With Us page to join our sangha and then participate in our Bodhi Bodies Group.

Meetings. We meet online monthly on the fourth Sunday from 7:30 am to 8:30 am Mountain Time (US). We strive to make our sessions as accessible as possible, and if you need a particular accommodation, please reach out to us.

Our Format:

  • 20 minutes of mindfulness in the Plum Village tradition (unguided),
  • 20 minutes for introductions and the dharma reading or video, then
  • 20 minutes for dharma sharing
