Calligraphic Meditation

The Mindful Art of Thich Nhat Hanh


Today, His Holiness the Dalai Lama came to Eugene, Oregon to share his message, “The Path to Peace and Happiness in a Global Society”. There were about 11,000 of us who came together to share in this momentous occasion.


Along the path many of walked to and from the event were these meditations. Simple, yet elegant.


I do not know who took the time to create and leave such a loving gift, but thank you. What a pleasure to pause, read the meditation, and enjoy my breath.


We are one community, one heart.

A lotus blossom to each of you.

Happy Earth Day

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.

Thich Nhat Hahn






Once in a Lifetime


His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is coming to Oregon in May.

He will be in Portland for most of his time in our state, but will make a one-day trip to Eugene to speak on The Path to Peace & Happiness in a Global Society.

What a joy to have the opportunity to sit, breathe and share in the wisdom of this remarkable man. Beyond that, I have no words to express my feelings at this time, and perhaps that is as it should be.
