Share your Reflections on the Monks and the World Peace Mandala


In February, the Tibetan Monks created The World Peace Mandala at Florida CraftArt. How did the experience affect you? Have you written about it...a poem, perhaps a song? Have you created an artwork inspired by the event? Did you spread peace in your world?

We'd like to hear about it! Come and share your art it inspired, Sunday, April 2, at 2 p.m. 
Conversation leaders will be Maureen McDole, poet and founder of Keep St. Pete Lit and Rev. Jack Donovan of the Unitarian Universalist Church of St. Petersburg. 
Here’s a limerick Rev. Donoavan wrote about the experience: 
Tibetan Monk Epiphany to an Irish Monk in Limerick
Once a mandala for peace
Was created with effort and ease;
Now that it’s done,
It’s also gone -
In undoing given release.

History and Description: The St. Petersburg Sangha offers participants an opportunity to pause in their busy schedules to join others in mindfulness meditation to support living mindfully. We practice in the engaged Buddhism tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh and meet weekly for meditation, mindfulness practice and Buddhist teachings. Our teacher, Fred Eppsteiner, teaches in St. Petersburg once a month at our sangha meetings.

Format: Please arrive about 10 minutes early. Enter the meditation room quietly, remove your shoes, and settle in. At 7:00pm, we will practice mindfulness sitting meditation for 30 minutes, walking meditation for 15 minutes, and then listen to a Dharma talk or participate in a Dharma discussion. Newcomer orientations are offered the last Wednesday of each month at 6:00pm.
