The Present Moment Is Available: Enjoy the wonders of life, one slice at a time.

 Dear Savor friends,

I’m happy to share with you a beautiful display of one of Thay’s classic teachings that I saw at the Plum Village 30th anniversary celebration exhibit:

Thay teaches about meditation and being in the present moment so that we can enjoy the wonders of life.

Enacting new year resolutions: stop & look, understand & transform.

Do you find yourself stuck somewhere between making healthful New Year's intentions and implementing them? Mindfulness practice can help bridge this gap. When we are aware, we can change long-ingrained patterns without condemning or depriving ourselves.

A meditation for you: Listen deeply
