Mindfulness -- how did that get to be an Easter Sunday topic?

In case you were wondering, I chose the title for Sunday evening's dharma conversation before I realized that March 27th was Easter.  So what does mindfulness have to do Easter?

First thought, if I had been more mindful, perhaps I would have noticed Easter and had a more relevant topic.  Next thought, reflecting my Christian roots with a metaphorical twist, Easter is a time of rebirth -- mindfulness brings us alive and awake to the present moment. That works.

I'm actually going to explore a third take on Easter and mindfulness, appreciating what is, as exemplified by the young artist above.  He is focused, he is himself, he is present to what he is doing. Come to think of it, that might just touch on all three topic possibilities.  Come find out this Sunday, March 27th at 7 pm, Room 10
