Joyfully Together: A Day of Mindful Living

Posted by Kenley Neufeld at Feb 17, 2010 03:40 PM |
Professional 32-minute video sharing the experience of a day at Deer Park Monastery.

Filmed entirely at Deer Park Monastery in Escondido, California. Deer Park Monastery is a Zen practice center in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. 

The video is a gift to the community and you may download and show to your sangha and your friends. The cinematographer and producer of the video wishes that donations be made to the Nunnery Building Project. Suggested donation is $10, but any amount is appreciated.

I want to thank all those who helped make this inspired video. I felt serenity, aliveness, and heartwarming joy as I watched the beautiful images unfold. I treasured the moments in nature interspersed with the human events. Interbeing symbolized! I particularly treasured the quiet moments of birds and other animals. Also those precious moments of children so peacefully sleeping in their parents fold. Thanks for this lovely creation.

This video was made with a lot of love and exquisite care. It's a wonderful introduction to Deer Park for friends and family that may want to know more about where we spend time and a warm reflection for those of us who have been there. It's intentionally "non-Buddhist" in content but the video itself is a beautiful guided meditation. The pace and careful editing are reminiscent of walking meditation for me. The sites and smiles are heart warming. It's also a treat to see familiar faces of friends and monastics, including some that have since relocated.

Enjoy the video and feel great about supporting such a worth cause as well.

This video has captured very nicely the essence of Deer Park's beauty, the silence, the reverence it has for life, love, innocence, and togetherness. So well done! Thank you for sharing it.

My brothers and sisters of Deer Park have been in my thoughts daily since my return in February of this year. This thirty minute watching and listening meditation allowed me to feel the love and peace of this beautiful space and sangha, and allowed me to touch the gift of love and presence so freely shared and modeled. Blessings to all.
