Modern western culture has made incredible advances in external technologies, many meant to help relieve human suffering and provide comfort by manipulating external circumstances. Still, many people find themselves suffering in our rapidly changing world. Mindfulness Tools, rooted in Buddhist teachings, offer us “internal technologies” to help us find joy and peace no matter what our external circumstances.
This Chequamegon Unitarian Universalist Fellowship talk will be both informational and experiential—attendees will be given a chance to try some of these Mindfulness Tools. Seth VanZeeland, Northland College baritone, will be our guest musician for this service.
