Registration Open! Day of Mindfulness 2014 December 21 @ Poh Ming Tse Temple

No death no fear

Dear Friend,

You are invited to a Day of Mindfulness (DOM) in the Plum Village tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, facilitated by Joyful Garden Sangha in collaboration with Poh Ming Tse Temple.

The DOM is a day for the community to come back together to be nourished from the collective energies, practicing leaving behind work and worries, to experience the happiness of the present moment. In practicing together, we learn to enjoy doing daily things with mindfulness – walking, sitting, eating, listening, speaking, resting – bringing our body and mind into the present moment.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
New Venue: Poh Ming Tse Temple (please see below).
Lunch: You are invited to prepare and bring your own lunch (vegetarian, including egg and dairy, i.e. lacto-ovo vegetarian) & cutlery.
