Practicing Mindfulness: Moving Towards Action in the World

Presented by Chelsea Ray

One service at 10:00 am

A student of the teaching of Thich Nhat Hanh, Chelsea Ray will present on mindfulness and gratitude and how it can be harnessed for a happier and more fulfilling life. Gratitude for what already is helps ground us as we move towards action to better our world. In a time that can be exhausting with so much change in the country, how can we use mindfulness to carefully select how we wish to act in the world and make a difference, while also staying nourished and loving to ourselves?

Chelsea Ray has been a student of different yoga traditions for more than 20 years, and has studied mindfulness in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh for the past 9 years, including attending a weeklong retreat in Plum Village in France and at Blue Cliff Monastery in New York. She has helped lead services at the Augusta and Portland UU churches on this topic, and is currently a member of the Open Heart Sangha.
