Five Stones Sangha
Monthly Mindfulness Meditation Day
Saturday, March 3, 2012 from 10:00AM until 2:00PM
“A day of mindfulness can be the lever that will lift us to the habit of practicing mindfulness every hour and every moment. Everyone has the right to such a day, for without it we will lose ourselves quickly in a life full of worry and action, and our responses will become increasingly useless.”
Thich Nhat Hanh (Thay)
