The Community of Mindfulness in Israel practices the mindfulness tradition of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village community. We meet weekly for meditation in both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, hold national days of mindfulness every six weeks and organize larger retreats and other events throughout the year.
“What we should ask ourselves is if we are practicing love for ourselves, because to love ourselves means to love our community. If we’re able to love ourselves, to nourish ourselves correctly, to not intoxicate ourselves, we’re already protecting and nurturing our society. Because the moment we’re able to smile, to look at ourselves with compassion, our world begins to change.” Thich Nhat Hanh

“A Calm Mind and a Joyful Heart”
Tuesday, 25 October, 2016
Mindfulness is our capacity to be fully present in our own lives, to be aware of what we are doing as we are doing it. As we develop our awareness, an inner stillness naturally grows. We are better able to embrace the world, better able to respond wisely and lovingly. If we are not mindful, we are split, and disconnected from the life energy that is in us and in the world.
During this 90 minute workshop we will explore mindfulness as a daily practice and become familiar with conscious breathing, sitting meditation, and walking meditation.
The meeting is organized with the Center for Mindfulness in English and will be taught by Dr. Mitchell Ratner (see below).
The meeting is open to new and veteran practitioners alike, and will take place on Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at Dojo, Broshim Campus (Haim Levanon, 30 Corner of George Wise, 1, Tel Aviv). Arrival and registration at 7 PM, Practice from 7:30 PM to 9 PM. Entry fee 20 NIS to cover expenses.
