We will be sharing ‘The Art of Communicating’ by the revered master of mindfulness, Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh. When you register for the event you will receive the zoom link to attend. This will be a recurring meeting every Wednesday @ 8pm until we finish the book – approximately 8 weeks. Come along to them all or just drop in when you can make it. We will share a brief mindfulness practice at the beginning of each session, and then read from the book. The same link will access all 8 sessions.

About the book:

Beloved Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh reveals the secret to authentically connecting with yourself and the world.

‘Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth’ The Dalai Lama

How do we say what we truly mean? How can we learn to listen with compassion and understanding? How do we find true connection with one another?

Celebrated Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh shares the five steps to truly mindful communication. Drawing on his experience working with couples, families, colleagues and even on international conflict, the world’s most famous monk has created a simple guide to communicating with yourself, others and the world.
