Ananda in Texas has found a new home and is gradually transitioning into more in-person gatherings while still keeping a strong virtual presence. Our Ananda Sangha House located in Richardson, TX is now meeting more regularly, but please see our calendar for exact dates when we are meeting in person and when we are online. Our Austin Meditation Group is currently meeting most Sundays. We also have a new Houston Meditation Group that is now meeting at least once a month in person. We invite you to visit us in person and also check out ONLINE offerings as well.
