If you are a sangha organizer, facilitator, or someone on the OI path, you are warmly invited to an in-person tea time.

Anyone who is a sangha organizer/facilitator in the Plum Village tradition is welcome. Please RSVP to dylan@tweney.com if you’re planning on coming.

This is a chance for organizers, facilitators, caretaking council members, ordained Order of Interbeing members, OI aspirants, OI-curious folks, and sangha builders of all types to gather in friendship for honest and vulnerable discussion together.

What’s really going on in the Northern California PV community? Are we on the right path? What do we need as a community to continue beautifully into the future?

Bring your whole selves to this meeting, and we will hold our aspirations and our concerns together.


  • 10-1 Sangha practice
  • 1-2:30 Sangha tea

You are free to join for part or all of the day.

  • If you are joining us from 10-1, please bring your own vegetarian lunch.
  • If you are joining us from 1 to 2:30, please bring some tea or another drink you can enjoy and something to share.

Suggestions for what you might want to share:

  • Ideas
  • Practices
  • Questions
  • Suffering

  • Aspirations
  • Energy
  • Your beautiful smile

Our intention is to offer these meetings roughly monthly, alternating on Zoom and in person, usually on the 2nd Saturday of the month.
