September 29 | Day of Mindfulness

A Day of Mindfulness, led by Thich Nhat Hanh, will take place at Magnolia Grove Monastery in Batesville, Mississippi. The day will begin at 9:00am and is open to everyone. The event is open to the public with the suggested donation of $50 for adults and $30 for teens – this will help the monastery to cover the costs for food and other expenses for that day.

Advance registration is required.

As with all our events, we encourage participants to share rides wherever possible in order to reduce the environmental aspect of traveling. Please use the commenting system below to make connections with other participants to offer rides and insights on reducing the impact.

      I would like to attend if I can. I’m in Memphis. If you have not already made arrangements, could we discuss ride and/or lodging sharing?

    I am driving from Virginia for the 5 day, over 800 miles! I would very much appreciate a place to stay in the area the night before, Sept. 23. I could take someone also. I haven’t registered for day of mindfulness at end which I had not noticed before so might need a place to stay after that or the 5 day. Better to get a night’s rest before hitting the road rather than driving late in day or night. I am also looking for places to stay along way, e.g. Nashville area and perhaps somewhere in between Nashville and Memphis. Thank you!

    I will be attending from Portland, Oregon. If anyone else is attending from this area, I’d love to connect with you before the retreat. Please post a comment so we can get in touch with each other.
