Welcome to Cañon Sangha
Canon Sangha is a peer-led community which was formed to practice the Dharma (the teachings of the Buddha). The Sangha is dedicated to fostering a harmonious community for all people to explore meditation and mindful living. We support each other on the path of deepening our practice of wisdom and compassion for the benefit of all beings.
