Thich Nhat Hanh

Day of Mindfulness led by Cuong Lu

July 27, 2019 at Farm Zendo from 9:30am-4:30pm

As many of you know, some SnowFlowers engage their practice in the prisons so that they can share this path of alleviating suffering with everyone. This engaged practice inspired a Plum Village monastic, Cuong Lu, to become a prison chaplain in the Netherlands. Cuong Lu was an ordained monk at Plum Village from 1993 to 2009, and received the lamp transmission to be a Dharmacharya from Thich Nhat Hanh in 2000. Most recently, he founded the Mind Only School in the Netherlands where he teaches Buddhist philosophy and psychology. Cuong Lu will be traveling to Madison and SnowFlower is hosting a Day of Mindfulness with him on July 27th at the Farm Zendo. Timing for Cuong’s full visit is still being worked out, but the DOM will be from 9:30-4:30.
