The Art of Living DiscussionSeptember 21, 2017, 5:00pmIowa City Public Library Room CThis meeting will kick off an eight-week, chapter-by-chapter discussion of Vietnamese Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh's newest book, "The Art of Living," sponsored by the Iowa City Sangha. Attendees must obtain a copy of the book. Everyone is welcome. Book description: In his new book, Thay ("teacher" in Vietnamese) "presents seven transformative meditations that open up new perspectives on our lives, our relationships and our interconnectedness with the world around us. Based on the last full talks before his sudden hospitalization, and drawing on intimate examples from his own life, Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how these seven meditations can free us to live a happy, peaceful and active life, and face aging and dying with curiosity and joy and without fear. Containing the essence of the Buddha’s teachings and Thich Nhat Hanh’s poignant, timeless, and clarifying prose, The Art of Living provides a spiritual dimension to our lives. This is not an effort to escape life or to dwell in a place of bliss outside of this world. Instead, this path will allow us to discover where we come from and where we are going. And most of all, it will generate happiness, understanding, and love, so we can live deeply in each moment of our life, right where we are."
