Days of Mindfulness

Boston Old Path Sangha, along with the Mindfulness Practice Community of Greater Boston, holds a Day of Mindfulness periodically throughout the year.

Upcoming:

Day of Mindfulness

“Kindness”
with Dharma Teacher John Bell

9:30am – 4:00pm

Saturday, February 9, 2019

Chua Vietnam
68 Bradeen Street, Roslindale, MA

The practice of kindness is central to freedom. Kindness to our bodies, our minds, our family and friends, our sangha. Receiving kindness and offering kindness. Kindness in our speech, our thoughts, our actions. Kindness in a toxic political environment. Kindness to our “enemies.” Kindness to animals, plants, and minerals. Kindness towards the past, the future, our ancestors and the unborn.

Enjoy a day of practicing kindness! Share ways we have shown kindness and have received kindness. Learn or deepen practices that cultivate kindness in all directions.

John Bell is a Dharma Teacher and Order of Interbeing member.


The registration fee of $20 supports the temple. However no one is required to pay to attend any Day of Mindfulness. Checks should be made out to Temple Vietnam. In addition, a Dana basket will be available for our teachers so they can continue to share the dharma with a suggested dana of $20. Please dress warmly, especially with socks and slippers, and wear comfortable clothes. Kindly bring a vegetarian bag lunch, your own cup and a napkin. Tea will be available.
