AMC HISTORY - BEGINNING to the PRESENT MOMENT
In the fall of 2017, Anacortes Mindfulness Community arose from the vision of creating a deeply practicing Sangha to serve our San Juan island community and the surrounding area. From its humble beginnings, located up 55 steps in the top floor ballroom of the Keystone Building at the former Anacortes Center for Happiness, AMC Sangha grew and is now occupying a more accessible space at the beautiful Dancing Camel Yoga Studio. In the midst of our growth, global pandemic struck in 2020 and all meditation halls were closed down. We immediately began meeting via Zoom and that practice continues to this day. In addition to meeting in person - AMC is now a successful "hybrid" Sangha.
Our teacher is Jonathan Prescott, who guides our Practice Leaders, offers monthly Dharma talks, and leads Retreats, Days of Mindfulness, and Practice Periods.
Jonathan's Dharma Talks are available as podcasts and on YouTube. Please subscribe the Anacortes Mindfulness Community on Apple Podcasts or on Soundcloud.
AMC Sangha Officers currently are:
- Ron Wohl, President
- Sarah Roberts, Secretary
- Sandra Starbuck, Treasurer; Communications/Membership
- Sue Jones, Publicity, Communications/Membership
