Living an intentional life – a study session

  • Wellington Friends’ Centre 7 Moncrieff Street Mount Victoria Wellington (map)

What do we need to do to live an intentional life? Tonight, and on Wednesday 28 November, we will be discussing a contemporary reworking of the five ‘mindfulness trainings’ that Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh adapted from the traditional five precepts. 

Please click THIS LINK to download them and prepare for our discussion by reading them and considering these questions:

  1. What do you find useful about these trainings?

  2. What would you add or remove from this version?

  3. Compare this version to a more traditional version of the five precepts. What do you like about each version?

  4. Choose one of these trainings. How would you write it in your own words?
