“I have arrived. I am home”
These two lines are the essence of the practice taught by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. It is the practice of dwelling happily in the present moment. We are no longer grasping at the future, regretting the past or being swept away by our feelings of despair and anger. We have arrived at our true home, our true self, no longer seeking to be something else.
Who Can Practice With Us?
We welcome all people of all nationalities and all faiths and beliefs. We never ask anyone to abandon their traditions and practices. We are simply here to share our learning about the wonderful benefits of mindfulness meditation and the insights offered by our teacher Thich Nhat Hanh and Shakyamuni Buddha. Nobody needs become a Buddhist to participate with us.
You can join in the daily schedule of our Monastery and you can participate in retreats and days of mindfulness which are organised regularly throughout the year.
