Description of April 2023 Visit

How can you apply Engaged Mindfulness in your daily life? How might mindfulness help us to collectively address the challenges we face as a human species? How do these practices inform our approaches to handling strong emotions, such as our individual and collective grief? Join us in exploring these topics and more through a week of presentations, discussions, meditation practice and classroom discussions with 10 senior monastic Dharma teachers from scholar, poet, peace activist and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's Deer Park Monastery in California. They will share practical examples of how mindfulness practices can be applied in the context of our daily lives to cultivate insight, compassion, build resilience, non-fear and nurture a culture of inclusivity and loving kindness.
