The Miracle of Mindfulness:  October 16, 2019 (6-8pm)

This short, sweet read originally existed as a letter that meditation master, Thich Nhat Hanh, wrote to another Buddhist monk during the Vietnam War, after his own exile from Vietnam in 1966 following his monumental efforts to bring peace to the region.

He clarifies the importance of meditation and provides resources, as well as a practical guide, for including moments of mindfulness in our daily lives.  The lessons in this book remind us that meditating and exercising mindfulness do not have to be complicated or overwhelming and can truly enrich our lives!

Book club will consist of a short yoga practice suitable for all levels. Snacks and beverages will be provided. Please BYOBook!
