Creating a Beautiful Past

Dwelling In the Present We Heal the Past and Take Good Care of the Future

Drawing on stories of 15 years of living as a nun with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, and transitioning to lay life in the last 2 years, Kaira Jewel explores how living deeply in the present allows us to heal wounds from our past, not only in ourselves but also in our ancestors. And how the only way to prepare well for the future is to take good care of this moment, right here and now.

The first 30 min of the talk is a guided meditation on being present for and caring for our bodies.
