Joyful Breath Retreat
Friday, June 8th 2012 at 4pm
At YMCA Camp Norwich -- A mindfulness retreat led by the monastics of Blue Cliff Monastery in the tradition and lineage of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. This awareness helps us to be able to touch deeply the wonders of life and transform the roots of our suffering. In Engaged Buddhism we use situations in our daily lives for our training and reflection, rather than simply meditating formally on our cushions. We meditate throughout the day: while eating, walking, working, or enjoying a cup of tea together.
