Welcome to Montana Open Way Sanghas. We consist of four communities in three different towns in western Montana: Open Way and Be Here Now in Missoula, Flowing Mountains in Helena, and Open Sky in Kalispell. Twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, we all gather together to offer residential retreats in the tradition of Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh. Open Way Sangha formed in 1989 to practice mindfulness and meditation in the tradition of Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh and the Tiep Hien Order; translated in the West as The Order of Interbeing.
