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.
