When is the next Mindfulness Day?

Saturday, September 30, 2017

10 am-4 pm

Where?

53rd Street Library

18 West 53rd Street, opposite MoMA (Museum of Modern Art)

Why is this day special?

  • Because it will be “Now.”
  • Because it will include you
  • Because we will really become aware of the day, sense its fullness.
  • Because we will practice awareness of flowers (beauty) as well as the mud (difficulty) that is necessary for their growth.
