Working in the human service fields can be fulfilling. While taking care of others for their physical, emotional and spiritual sufferings, nourishing the mind and heart is important for the helping professionals to support their work.


In this Day of Mindfulness, we will learn the practice of mindful breathing, walking meditation, eating in silence, total relaxation, deep listening and loving speech. These practices will help us to slow down, to take a break in our busy life. We will listen to Zen Master (Thay) Thich Nhat Hanh’s talk on ways to take care of our body and mind while serving others.

 The dharma talk and sharing will focus on topics related to professional human service and healthcare work. Friends who are not in these professions are recommended to join other activities offered during Thay’s 2013 tour in Hong Kong. For details please refer to
