Day of Mindfulness 2017

  • Ecumenical Buddhist Society 1516 West 3rd Street Little Rock, AR, 72201 United States

Hosted by River Valley Mindfulness Sangha

Led by Monks and Nuns of Magnolia Grove Meditation Practice Center

In the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh

More than ever, we want to learn and incorporate meditation in our daily life, to make it a natural part of our lives. At our Day of Mindfulness we learn practical forms of meditation that make our lives a calm, flowing, minute-to-minute meditation. As meditation becomes part of our life, our work and our relationships, the stress and conflict that may exist are transformed. Day of Mindfulness combines dharma talks, walking meditation, mindful eating and mindful discussion as well as silence and deep relaxation. No previous experience in meditation is required. 

 

And for the first time in many years here in Little Rock, we'll be offering a ceremony for the transmission of the 5 Mindfulness Trainings. This beautiful formal ceremony will be offered to anyone who wishes to receive the Trainings. For information about the Trainings and ceremony, go here:
