In this Day of Practice, we will learn more about the incredible life of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh (or Thay as his students call him, meaning teacher in Vietnamese), who was a global spiritual leader, poet, and peace activist, revered around the world for his teachings on mindfulness, universal ethics, and peace. We will learn through the experiences of a devoted student, Kaira Jewel Lingo, who lived and practiced with Thay for 15 years as a nun.
Kaira Jewel will be sharing precious, personal stories of practicing Thay’s transformational teachings, and how she learned to touch true happiness and heal suffering because of them. Our day will be grounded in practices that can help us to transform suffering and live with more ease and joy. Practices will include Thich Nhat Hanh’s unique style of guided meditation, including pebble meditation, walking mindfully, singing, Deep Relaxation, the Ten Mindful Movements, a Tai-Chi inspired practice which he taught, and Q&A with Kaira Jewel.
