Is Everything Suffering?*
A Day Of Mindfulness in the tradition of Plum Village and Zen Master, poet and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh
Venue: Neve Shalom ~ Wahat al-Salam
Date: Saturday, March 3, 2018
Time : 10:00-17:00
Facilitation: Shelagh Shalev – Dharma teacher,
Eli Sasson – long term practitioner in the Plum Village tradition
* It is true that the Buddha taught the truth of suffering, but he also taught the truth of “dwelling happily in things as they are”. To succeed in the practice, we must stop trying to prove that everything is suffering. In fact, we must stop trying to prove anything. If we touch the truth of suffering with our mindfulness, we will be able to recognize and identify our specific suffering, its specific causes, and the way to remove those causes and end our suffering.
