Young Adults (in their 20s&30s) came together for an all day program on the topic of “Transforming Suffering; Cultivating Well-Being” on April 22nd. The program included meditation, discussion, active explorations of mindfulness and a garden-produce lunch. We also spent some time outdoors on that beautiful day exploring mindful connection with the natural world.
The discussion included guided exercises on compassion for oneself and others.
