The Saskatoon Community of Mindful Living
Awakening Self-Awareness, January 4-6th, 2013

Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh has said that “each thought, each action in the sunlight of awareness, becomes sacred.” In any moment, we can take refuge in this awareness. This retreat will explore how to be more aware and awake in each moment - revealing the love & awareness that is our true nature.

Lay Teacher: Cheri Maples

Cheri received dharma teacher transmission from Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh in 2008. She has worked as a clinical social worker, a police officer and as assistant attorney general in Wisconsin. She is co-founder of the Center for Mindfulness and Justice. Her experience as a social justice advocate has been incorporated into her teaching of the Dharma and her practice of engaged Buddhism.
