Invites you to a Silent Morning of Mindfulness

                                                               Saturday January 21, 2012

“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)


Please join us if you can from 10AM until 1:00PM for a silent Morning of Mindfulness, when we can allow ourselves to water our positive seeds  of joy, equanimity, love, and happiness in a quiet, peaceful environment.  This activity is part of our Winter Retreat, as we practice along with the larger community at Plum Village, France. http://pvom.org/


Pamela has volunteered the use of her home at 2782 NW Rolling Green Dr.
