Each and every moment of our life can be an opportunity to touch life deeply and open our heart. Join Brother Phap Hai – a senior monastic in the Zen tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh – for this evening of mindfulness, to explore the concrete practices of mindfulness, of engaging with our life deeply, and of nurturing the heart of meditation.
Brother Phap Hai will present a prerecorded talk, followed by a meditation and Q&A live via Zoom.

Brother Phap Hai is a senior monastic student of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. He was ordained in 1997 and formally authorised to teach by Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh in January 2003. Originally from Australia, he is an active meditation teacher who leads retreats, days of mindfulness, workshops and talks throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, South America and Asia.
Brother Phap Hai has the ability to offer a charming blend of ancient wisdom, Dharma scholarship and contemporary applications, sharing deep teachings in a warm, accessible and humorous manner. In addition to numerous online teachings and classes, his first book, Nothing to It: Ten Ways to Be at Home with Yourself, was published by Parallax Press and is available everywhere.
All Sessions are by Donation (Dana) to the Buddhist Library. All donations to the Buddhist Library of $2 and over are tax deductible.
Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. Part of the dana you give goes to the teacher, to help him continue his efforts to spread the Dhamma. And part of the dana you give goes to maintain the Library so it can offer more teachings on the Dhamma in the future. It is up to each person to determine the amount of dana they’d like to offer. We understand that this is a difficult time financially for many, and people will give what they can. An appropriate dana can’t be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and to the individual’s own situation, as well as awareness of the cost of organising events and supporting teachers who spread the Dhamma.
