Day of Mindfulness: Saturday, October 11, 2014, 9:30-4:30, St. Francis of Assisi Church, Norwich, Vermont. facilitated by Dharma Teacher, Michael Ciborski
“Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower grow. There cannot be a lotus flower without the mud. To consume in order to cover up our suffering does not work. We need a spiritual practice to go deep into our suffering. In order to come home to ourselves without fear of encountering the suffering, we must have a practice of mindfulness and concentration.” (Thich Nhat Hanh)
