Buddhist meditation sessions to begin Sept. 13

Buddhist meditation in the style taught by Vietnamese Buddhist Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh will take place at 4:45 p.m. on Sept. 13. Sitting and walking meditation will be practiced. This tradition emphasizes mindfulness and careful analysis of our experience in the interests of encouraging peace and joy in our lives.

The first session will explain the basic practices; all parties are welcome.  No experience is necessary and you need not commit to anything more than trying the practices for the 45 minutes that you are there.

Contact Dr. Linda Paul if you have any questions or would like a copy of the written information about the practices ([email protected]).  Can’t make the first session?  Join us for a later one.  We plan on meeting each Tuesday 4:45-5:30 p.m. in the Kirby Salon.
