Blue Water Community of Mindful Living

Our Practice


We now meet in person every Sunday at 2:30 PM. Doors open at 2:15 PM. Our new meeting place is at the Unity of Bluewater Church, 431 17th Street, Port Huron, MI 48060. Please come early if you can to help set up.


We practice sitting and walking meditation in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, the Vietnamese Buddhist teacher, which emphasizes mindfulness.

According to  The Mindfulness Bell, the national publication and website of The Community of Mindful Living,  "To be mindful means to dwell deeply in the present moment, to be aware of what is going on within and around us.

Practicing mindfulness cultivates understanding, love, compassion and joy. This practice helps us to take care of and transform suffering in our lives and in our society.

Our practice is simple and easy to follow. We offer instruction to beginners  There are comfortable chairs and floor cushions available. Normally we sit for around twenty-five minutes followed by some walking meditation and another shorter period of sitting. Periodically we recite together the Five Mindfulness Trainings and once a quarter the Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings, which are the basis of our practice and a guide to happy living. The text of the Trainings can be found on our "Study" page. 

Other activities are planned  throughout the year.
