Event Description

 

In The Miracle of Mindfulness, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh introduces readers to the skills of mindfulness – of being awake and fully aware, reminding readers that each moment “holds within it an opportunity to work toward greater self-understanding and peacefulness.”

 

Zen master, poet and peace activist, he is the author of some 85 titles, among them Call Me by My True Names, Peace in Every Step, Living Buddha Living Christ and Teachings on Love.  In September 2001, a few days after the attacks on the World Trade Center, he addressed the issues of non-violence and forgiveness in a memorable appearance at New York City’s Riverside Church.   His ideas for peace, if applied, would, Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity.”

 

On Sunday, February 6, 2011, Sunday Morning Live, a weekly class offered by the United Church of Christ of La Mesa, will commence a study of The Miracle of Mindfulness and the practice of meditation.  Class is at 8:15am in “the library,” the church at 5940 Kelton Avenue, La Mesa, CA (619-464-1519, www.ucclm.org).

 

All are welcome.
