A Special Holiday Community Chat with Sister Boi Nghiem and Sister An Nghiem of Magnolia Grove Monastery!
23 November 2020
Sister Boi Nghiem (Sister True Pearl) and Sister An Nghiem (Sister True Grace) join us for the November Community Chat to discuss Giving Thanks, Thankfulness, and Gratitude. The Sisters are nuns at Magnolia Grove Monastery, a residential monastery, and Magnolia Village, a Mindfulness Practice Meditation Center. Magnolia Grove Monastery & Magnolia Village follow the tradition of Plum Village, founded by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, who was nominated for a Noble Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King.
Community Chats are monthly gatherings typically for Community Meditation members. Each month features a guest who will bring a teaching, a book, or a topic alive for an hour. Free for all members of Community Meditation and available for others via a donation.
However, this special Holiday Chat is free for anyone who wishes to join! Simply register below.
During these difficult and uncertain times for many people around the world, the monastics are also facing a challenge. While they usually depend on retreat fees to cover their basic necessities, they now rely entirely on the generosity of people like you while the centers are closed to the public.
Please let’s consider coming together in community to make a donation to help the monastics this Thanksgiving. A link will be provided the evening of the event.
Your donation means so much. It will help feed, house, and provide health care for the monastic sisters and brothers. With your help, they can continue to send healing and compassion out to the world, carry on Thich Nhat Hanh’s legacy, and offer the practice of mindfulness.
