Creating Contentment, Freshness, and Healing”

9:30am – 3:30pm

Saturday, April 13, 2019

Chua Vietnam
68 Bradeen Street, Roslindale, MA

When we practice with the Eight Fold Path, we discover our potential to establish a beautiful and nonjudgmental inner space. The Path Buddha gave us takes on deeper meaning when it is a lived experience that informs our everyday life. As dynamic beings we can learn to create, strengthen and deepen a practice to nourish our self and heal our suffering. Through this inner work we discover freshness and freedom. We can turn each everyday activity in the family, in our friendships and at work into a radiant, sacred moment.

The registration fee of $15 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.

Temple Vietnam is one mile from Forest Hills MBTA and the Arborway. You can reach it via the Arborway to Washington Street or via Forest Hills Orange Line MBTA. Search “68 Bradeen Street, Roslindale, MA 02131” in your navigation. Drive inside the gate for plenty of parking or park at end of the street.
