Day of Mindfulness Sept 15, 2012

The Appearance of the Morning Star: the Light at the Core of Suffering
Saturday, September 15, 10am-4.30pm, Riverside Church

Dear Friends,

The theme for our Saturday Day of Mindfulness is:  "The Appearance of the Morning Star: the Light at the Core of Suffering." We'll look into the story of Bhikkuni Patacara from chapter 55 of Thich Nhat Hanh's book Old Path, White Clouds.***

Our 'deep looking' will be grounded our practice of conscious breathing and mindfulness, as we practice sitting and walking meditation, enjoy mindful movements and singing, and listen and learn from each other in Dharma Sharing.

Please come for all or part of the Day.  Chairs and cushions available.  Lunch is around 1pm: bring your own vegetarian lunch.  Please do not wear fragrances.

Facilitated by Ishmael Wallace of the Riverside Sangha. 

Where: Riverside Church, Wellness Center, at 91 Claremont Avenune in Manhattan [between 120-122nd St. one block west of Broadway.]
When: Saturday, September 15, 10am-4.30pm.

***Patacara was one of the first Buddhist Nuns, in the time of the Buddha.  Her story is also told in "The First Buddhist Women."
