Event description

Description

mindfulness water

On January 28, 2017, we will come together to learn and practice the art of mindful living as a community. The purpose of mindfulness practice is to experience and demonstrate that happiness is possible right here and now. We will learn to get in touch with our inherent capacity for healing and renewal that we usually take for granted in our busy lives.

Dress comfortably; bring a mat and a cushion for sitting, and a blanket for the deep relaxation. Some cushions and chairs will be available.

Please bring a vegetarian dish to share for our potluck lunch. Emmanuel UMC will provide drinks, dishes, and utensils for us to eat together.

Our Teachers for the Mindfulness Workshop

Anh-Huong and Thu Nguyen

Anh-Huong and Thu Nguyen, principal teachers of Mindfulness Workshop

Anh-Huong and Thu Nguyen have been practicing mindfulness in the tradition of the Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh for 30 years. They have led mindfulness retreats in the United States since 1988 and in 1992 were among the first students to be ordained as meditation teachers by Thich Nhat Hanh. Anh-Huong is the author of “Opening the Heart of Compassion”, a guided meditation CD and co-author with Thich Nhat Hanh of “Walking Meditation”, a multimedia manual on mindful walking. She has also translated several of Thich Nhat Hanh’s books into English, including “The Sun My Heart” and “The Diamond that Cuts through Illusion”.
