“Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child – our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” – Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh (Thay), from the book “The Miracle of Mindfulness”
Come, be part of the #miracleofmindfulness.
The Day of Mindfulness (DOM) is a one-day mindfulness retreat in the tradition of Plum Village and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, facilitated by Joyful Garden Sangha in collaboration with Poh Ming Tse Temple. 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.
