HONOKAA, Hawaii: The Honokaa Hongwanji has decided to follow up last week’s well-received “Day of Mindfulness” with a second free event.
The Peace Committee sends the following information:
“How to meditate while washing dishes” and other steps toward More Mindfulness will be presented Sunday April 29, 2012 from 2-4 p.m. at Honokaa Hongwanji Buddhist Temple. “More Mindfulness” (Further steps on your Personal Path to Peace) expands on last week’s program to include ways we can apply mindfulness to everyday activities, such as washing dishes, cooking or driving a car—while enjoying a sense of peace and clarity of mind. Also included in the program will be an “Introduction to Walking Meditation.”
A program of the Peace Committee of Honokaa Hongwanji “More Mindfulness” presents special guests Brother Phap Man (New York) and Michael Donenfeld (Hilo), of Thich Nhat Hanh’s Order of Interbeing. Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, was instrumental in negotiating the end to the Vietnam War, and nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Admission is free and open to everyone regardless of religious or spiritual background. For more information please call the Honokaa Hongwanji Buddhist Temple, 45-5016 Plumeria Street, (775-7232); Peace Committee (640-4602) or the Order of Interbeing (933-9696).
