Letting Go and “Oh My Happiness”: A Day of Mindfulness with Jerry Braza
Mindfulness Community of Puget Sound (MCPS)
10 am – 4:30 pm, Saturday, October 21st.
Registration link below, please bring “brown-bag” lunch.
Join us for a day of reflection upon what it means to do everything with a mind that lets go. Together we will stop and look deeply at the practice of letting go as a way to experience deep happiness and peace. Our teacher Thich Nhat Hanh suggests, “Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything — anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.”
The Family Sangha will be joining this day of mindfulness, offering a morning-only program of activities and fun, for children accompanied by their parents. Some activities will be done together with adults, and Jerry Braza will also be offering a 30 minute portion for children at 10:00am. All ages of children are welcome, and they should be dressed for outdoor activities.

“Do everything with a mind that lets go. If you let go a little you a will have a little peace; if you let go a lot you will have a lot of peace; if you let go completely you will have complete peace.”
