      Transmission of the Five Mindfulness Trainings

      In the Still Water MPC we often recite together the Five Mindfulness Trainings at our weekly gatherings. The trainings remind us of our deep aspiration to live every day with a calm mind and an open heart. They provide invaluable guidelines for mindful living.

      The trainings enter us most deeply when we receive them formally, in a Five Mindfulness Trainings transmission ceremony. This transmission publicly joins us with the tradition of mindfulness practice passed from teacher to student in an unbroken line from the Buddha, through many Indian, Chinese and Vietnamese teachers, through Thich Nhat Hanh, to us.
