You are warmly welcome to celebrate Christmas with the community here at Deer Park. We will listen to the Christmas Dharma talk given by our teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh, in Plum Village, France, and we will practice walking meditation, enjoying a meal as a family, sharing our songs, poems, stories etc., finishing with a candle-light procession. In our celebration we cultivate mindfulness to touch our inner light, to nourish our love and togetherness.
3:30 pm Dharma Talk followed by singing, 5:30 pm Dinner in the Dining Hall, 7:30 Be-In with performances, 9pm Candlelight Walking Meditation
Dinner will be potluck - vegetarian/vegan food.
We suggest you arrive by 3:15 to allow time to walk to the hall and set up headphones before the talk if needed.
Note that all Days of Mindfulness are open to the public, and there is no need for registration. You are welcome to leave a donation at your own discretion.
