Day of Mindfulness – June 2nd, 2013 – an attempt to describe this day in words (ending up by posting 2 clips)

On Sunday, June 2nd, the European Institute of Applied Buddhism, EIAB, invited for the Day of Mindfulness – with a Dharma Talk and a Walking Meditatio with Thich Nhat Hanh -[ Thay, as he is being called, which is Vietnames for “teacher” or even “precious/beloved teacher” as I was told]  This blog entry is my attempt to convey the impressions of this day in words.  

And it strikes me as a challenge. Despite being a word-gourmet of some sorts..probably everyone knows that there are experiences which lack any expression …maybe because they are made not through the over-hyperactive-analyzing rational mind but are deeply heart-felt.

     The Headline of this Day of Mindfulness was “Healing Through Reconciliation”

     – this starts with your own healing – your own understanding of inner pain and

      sorrows – because, like Thay said, you are only able to love and forgive others,

      when you are able to be kind to yourself.

Sunday night, after having returned home from the EIAB, especially after these outstanding moments of the Dharma Talk and quite a few sunny hours in the Buddha Garden, I felt like sketching something which was “heart-related” …

 The Plum Village monastery made a clip of a bit more than an hour of this talk which you can see in this post. It will not be the same as being there in this exceptional presence of Thich Nhat Hanh and the wonderful nuns and monks of Plum Village and the EIAB…

Maybe you feel a bit thirsty for inner peace and healing, some Inspiration to remind you of life-essentials…then you are invited to watch this clip…

This is the reciting of Avalokiteshvara’s Name. It was part of the Dharma Talk…you will probably grasp how deep it went even through this YouTube Clip
