Seven monastic students of Thich Nhat Hanh, a widely respected Zen Buddhist monk, teacher, author and peace activist, previously nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, are touring UK universities to offer workshops on mindfulness. Mindfulness is a simple, scientifically proven way to bring our mind back to our body, to become aware of what is happening in our present experiences so that we may live with happiness, joy and freedom. When we are mindful our minds are clear and at peace, and our hearts open and light.
These workshops will offer practical exercises in mindfulness of breath, body and mind, and share ways to cope with stress, release tension and handle strong emotions, including sessions on sitting meditation, walking meditation, mindful eating and deep relaxation.
