It is a wonderful opportunity to spend time together with monastic and lay practitioners as we, in a concrete way, offer our time and energy to some needed areas within this amazing valley.
We ask for your help in our mindful work on Saturday March 16, 2013.
Please bring work gloves, wear casual clothing, and be prepared to work outside. This Saturday, there is also need for some help in the office to prepare for Thay's upcoming tour for those who would like to work indoors.
We will begin gathering at 8:45am outside the Ocean of Peace Hall to sing some songs and divide into groups to start our joyful service. There will be a break and snacks around 11am. At 12:30pm we will enjoy a mindful picnic meal together. In the afternoon at 3pm there will be a DVD Dharma Talk by our teacher if you would like to stay behind to listen.

Our work becomes joyful service of the heart as we allow ourselves to work wholeheartedly, in harmony and not in a rush. You can read some more about the practice of working meditation on our website.
See a couple of monastics hard at work.
