Remember the story Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh told of the crowded refugee boats. “If even one person on the boat stayed calm, it was enough. It showed the way for everyone to survive.” It is our inner nobility and steadiness that we must call upon in our personal and collective difficulties. - Jack Kornfield

Please join us virtually for meditation and readings on being present with compassion for ourselves and others during these times of uncertainty.

To support our sangha, its members, and the community we have set up a food and supply donation container at the center.
Please consider practicing the paramita of generosity to strengthen our sangha community.
Donations of food and clothing collected at the center so far have been given to Hunger First in Kingsport, and much appreciated, especially since the weather just took a turn and temperatures dropped. We will continue to receive donations in the boxes we have provided at ADMC. Thank you so much for your generosity.

The vision of the Appalachian Dharma & Meditation Center is to facilitate a community of Buddhist practice that fosters the integration of wisdom and compassion. Our aim, as individuals and as a community, is to cultivate insight into the nature of mind and reality and overcome ego-orientated ways of being. We are a nonsectarian Buddhist center that offers weekly programs in Zen and Western Buddhism.
