Vietnamese Zen master, social activist, and author Thích Nhất Hạnh has said, “Life is available only in the present. That is why we should walk in such a way that every step can bring us to the here and the now.”
In this fast-paced society, mindfully living every moment in the present can seem difficult when we are worried about our jobs, our grades, our families, and the state of the world. Come and learn about the roots of Buddhist thought and traditions as well as the Mindfulness Practice movement associated with the global spiritual leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called “an apostle of peace and nonviolence.”
