More on The Blooming of a Lotus:
Description from Amazon
"A meditation retreat with one of the world's great teachers. Thich Nhat Hanh is a Buddhist teacher, philosopher, and the author of numerous books. Martin Luther King, Jr., nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize. "More than anyone I know, he ›Thich Nhat Hanh| has made mindfulness practice accessible to the modern world. His clear, precise exercises really work."Natalie Goldberg, author of WRITING DOWN THE BONES."

Why George Thinks We Should Read It:
"At our meeting, I mentioned his book which contains much material for use in meditation. It is "The Blooming of a Lotus." ("Guided Meditation for Achieving the Miracle of Mindfulness.") On the cover of my paperback is "He shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth." -- His Holiness the Dalai Lama This book was published in 1993. (It's now old enough to buy alcohol.)"

      Aldo, great meeting you. Isn't that the idea to "live it" and not at a remove?!

    I've injured my back and I don't think I can sit for long. I really wanted to come tonight! I'm sorry for the last minute cancellation
