Day of Mindfulness

“To practice right mindfulness we need the right environment, and that environment is our sangha. Without a sangha we are very weak. In a society where everyone is rushing, everyone is being carried away by their habit energies, practice is very difficult. That is why the sangha is our salvation. The sangha where everyone is practicing mindful walking, mindful speaking, mindful eating seems to be the only chance for us to succeed in ending the vicious cycle. And what is the sangha? The sangha is a community of people who agree with each other that if we do not practice right mindfulness, we will lose all the beautiful things in our soul and all around us.”

– Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh (Thay)

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. [Click here to register]
