For the past few weeks our friends at Joyful Garden Sangha have been happily busy preparing for our Plum Village Retreat in Singapore this year (16-19 July 2015). We still remember to nurture ourselves everyday with moments of silent sitting, deep breaths and gentle steps, so that working can be another chance to cultivate mindfulness and to build friendship.
The monthly Day of Mindfulness (DOM) is still going on as part of our practice and as a gift to the larger community. Please come join us!
The DOM is a one-day mindfulness retreat in the tradition of Plum Village and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. It is a day for the community to come back together to be nourished from the collective energies, practising leaving behind work and worries, to experience the many wonders of life. Together we learn to enjoy doing daily things with mindfulness – sitting, listening, eating, resting, walking, speaking – bringing our body and mind into the present moment.
