The Gulf Coast Community of Mindfulness is a community practicing meditation and mindfulness in the Plum Village tradition of the Venerable Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh (Thay). Thay’s key teaching is that, through mindfulness, we can learn to live in the present instead of in the past or the future. According to Thay, dwelling in the present moment is the only way to truly develop peace both in one’s self and in the world.
Each week we gather virtually as a community to practice together. Our practice session consists of a short dharma talk, walking meditation/mindful movements/pranayama, sitting meditation, and dharma sharing.
Every 3rd Wednesday of the month we will recite either the 5 Mindfulness Trainings or the 14 Mindfulness Trainings. These trainings represent the Buddhist vision for global spirituality and ethic. If we live according to the trainings, we are already on the path of a bodhisattva. Knowing we are on that path, we are not lost in confusion about our life in the present or in fears about the future.
Please feel free to contact Whitney with any questions you may have about meditation or mindfulness practices.
