Day of Mindfulness in Norwich, VT

October 11, 2014 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

No Mud, No Lotus

A Day of Mindfulness in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh

“Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower grow. There cannot be a lotus flower without the mud. To consume in order to cover up our suffering does not work. We need a spiritual practice to go deep into our suffering. In order to come home to ourselves without fear of encountering the suffering, we must have a practice of mindfulness and concentration.”  -Thich Nhat Hanh

This day of mindfulness will focus on the relationship of mud and lotus, with shared practice of breathing, sitting, walking, eating, speaking and listening.
