Another summer miracle...

How can this happen?


“There are only two ways to live your life.

One is as though nothing is a miracle.

The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

― Albert Einstein

Dear Friends,

I hope you are well and happy and enjoying every second of this glorious summer morning....and.....choosing miracles!

This is just a reminder that there will be a gathering tonight at 6 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of South County at the Lily Pads Complex on North Road in Peace Dale. We will enjoy a sitting meditation, and recite the Mindfulness Trainings, Clare will facilitate and Barbara will share an overview of the next Chapter from "The Heart of the Buddha's Teachings" and we will share the Dharma. I hope you will be able to be with us.

Thay continues his recuperation in CA and if you would like to help out with his medical expenses, you can find all the info on how to do that at


Also, there is an opportunity to be with us for a weekend retreat in October. The New London Community of Mindfulness is offering a retreat at Senexet House in Woodstock, CT from Oct 16-18.
