Your True Home: The Present Moment

Sunday, October 18, 2020 | 4:00pm

World-renowned meditation teacher Thich Nhat Hanh says that our true home is in the present moment. Discover ways to shift your attention to the present by meditating with different focal points, including your breath, body, sound, and a mantra. Our time together will include an exploration of the topic, guided meditation, silence, and reflection time. All are welcome to join this program designed to help you meditate with present moment awareness. A Zoom link and password along with any relevant materials for the program will be sent to you before the program.
