Tufts Buddhist Mindfulness Sangha is a student community that supports mindfulness and Buddhist activities at Tufts. It holds regular meetings where the Tufts University Buddhist in Residence or student members of the group lead guided meditation practices, followed by group discussions that seek to develop listening skills and compassion. The meetings provide a means to relieve stress and to become more mindful. Individuals of any religious or philosophical background are welcome, and no prior experience is necessary, only an open mind. The group is supported and advised by the Tufts University Chaplaincy Buddhist in Residence.
