Thich Nhat Hanh to bring mindfulness to House of Representatives and Senate

Talk about “Creating a Mindful Society.” Thich Nhat Hanh — as our friends at Elephant have reported — will be “giving a lecture and leading an overnight mindfulness retreat in late October for Members of Congress, their family members and Congressional staff.” It’s actually not even the first time he’s done this. You can read Thich Nhat Hanh’s 2003 address to Congress here, in the Shambhala Sun archives.
