Preparing for Winter: Day of Mindfulness October 21, 2017
Community of Mindfulness New York Metro
Inspired by the Teachings and Practice of Thich Nhat Hanh
Preparing for Winter: Mindfulness as Medicine
October 21: 10:00am-4:30pm, at Riverside Church, 20-T
Winter can bring many challenges from increased illness to low mood, malaise and depression (Seasonal Affective Disorder). In addition to a flu shot for our immune system, we can strengthen our spiritual life. We'll explore some methods of PM---Preventative Maintenance or Medicine-- to help nourish us through these months.
We will use the Buddha's insights, as transmitted by our Teacher Thay, and informed by the Sutras. And we will incorporate some of the findings from neuro-science
Our Day includes sitting and walking meditations, Dharma Sharing, Mindful Eating and singing, and breathing together in Community.
Come for all or Part of the Day.
No Experience Necessary.
The Day will be led by Dennis Bohn. Dennis received Lamp Transmission from Thay in 2011, and practices with the Rock Blossom Sangha in Brooklyn.
