Winter/Spring 2014 Issue
It is a joy to announce the Winter/Spring 2014 issue of the Mindfulness Bell, a beautiful collection of Dharma writings and photography.
Our beloved teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh, shows us the way of a bodhisattva – one who embodies peace and offers the healing balm of compassionate presence. This issue's question-and-answer session, "The Art of Suffering," is an example of Thay's fearless welcoming of any kind of suffering in order to transform it.
In an inspiring interview, Dharma teacher Anh-Huong Nguyen encourages us to embrace our pain and lean into the Sangha for support. "At the end of the day," she reflects, "when we are tired, we go home and rest. We can lie in bed, relax, and drop all our self-images. I wish that my brothers and sisters can find that same rest, that same comfort in their Sangha."
Also in this issue, young practitioners in the Wake Up movement share what it's like to be transformed by the collective energy of awakening. And practitioners of all ages offer stories of creativity, gratitude, and compassion.
A special report and photos tell the story of the 2013 New York City exhibit, Calligraphic Meditation: The Mindful Art of Thich Nhat Hanh.
