Touching the Earth Day of Mindfulness with the WakeUp Sangha, September 15th 2018

Inspired by the Teachings and Practice of Thich Nhat Hanh
invites you to a
Day of Mindfulness
Saturday, September 15 🌻 10am to 4pm
The Riverside Church, 91 Claremont Avenue, NYC,   Room 20T

“Touching the Earth:
            Transforming the Suffering in and Around Us.”
        Facilitated by the Wake Up Sangha
We are a diverse group of young people practicing the living art of mindfulness and meditation.  We have grown out of the teachings and under the guidance of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. We are part of a worldwide movement of young Buddhists and non-Buddhists practicing mindful living. We share a determination to live in an awakened way, to realize the path of understanding and love, and to help our society, which is overloaded with intolerance, discrimination, craving, anger, and despair. We aim to experience joy and ease in our pursuits, keeping it real with the laughter, sanity, and friendship that bloom from practicing mindfulness together. Our practitioners are aged 18-35.

                   “We are thrilled to share our Wake Up practice with
                 the Whole Community at this Day of Mindfulness”🌻

A veteran film industry lighting technician by day and political communications upstart by night, James has been practicing mindfulness with the Wake Up New York sangha for over four years now and serves on its sangha Care-Taking Council.
