[i]“To meditate does not mean to fight with a problem.
To meditate means to observe.
Your smile proves it.
It proves that you are being gentle with yourself,
that the sun of awareness is shining in you,
that you have control of your situation.
You are yourself,
and you have acquired some peace.”

~Thich Nhat Hanh, one of the best known and most respected Zen
masters in the world today, a poet, and peace and human rights activist[/i]

Thich Nhat Hanh’s key teaching is that, through mindfulness, we can learn to live in the present moment instead of in the past and in the future. Dwelling in the present moment is the only way to truly develop peace, both in one’s self and in the world.

This event is free of charge, and owing to a limited space, is open to the youth aged 18-35 only, and pre-registration is required. It will be conducted in both English and Madarin Chinese. Please contact with Jharna: gayajharna@gmail.com
