Heather Mann, ordained into the Order of Interbeing by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh in 2006, will lead us on this Day of Mindfulness titled “Mindful Advocacy for Personal and Community Resilience”. Retreat location is White Bear Unitarian Universalists Church in Mahtomedi, MN.
Heather is the founder and past directors of the Center for Resilient Cities and has had a career in environmental advocacy. She will bring her experience in climate change, mindful advocacy, sailing and writing to this day.
The Day of Mindfulness will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, a Dharma talk, group Dharma sharing, and eating meditation. Noble silence will be practiced throughout the day, except for the Dharma talk and group Dharma sharing.
Coffee, tea, and water will be provided along with some light snacks.
Please bring a plant based (vegan) lunch (if possible) as lunch will not be provided.
Chairs will be provided for sitting meditation. Please bring your own cushion if you want to sit on the floor for sitting meditation. You will be asked for your preference for sitting meditation when you register online.
While this Day of Mindfulness practice is grounded in the Plum Village tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, this is an interfaith event. We invite all people interested in the practice of mindfulness in their lives.
