Day of Mindfulness
in the Tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh

“Cultivating Seeds of Compassion:
Me   You  We”
with Dharma Teacher Peggy Smith
and Order of Interbeing member Theodate Lawlor

9:30am – 3:30pm

Saturday, March 9, 2019

Chua Vietnam
68 Bradeen Street, Roslindale, MA

In the blend of sitting, walking and eating meditation, we will explore current understandings of neuroscience. Where is the territory of Interbeing in our brain? What generates our reactivity? We will look at gentle, compassionate ways to heal reactivity and nurturing Interbeing.

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.
