Buddhadharma : Spring 2010
69 spring 2 01 0 buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly “sharing this experience was a beautiful fruition after many years of quiet cul- tivation of mindfulness both individu- ally and collectively. The importance of this retreat is far-reaching in that a large number of teachers from across India came together with a renowned master teacher to experience mindfulness for ourselves and explore how to realize this with children with whom we work.” “Of all the things we teach our chil- dren,” they continued, “mindful pres- ence is one of the most critical, yet it is often ignored in the rush to cover cur- riculum and supervise children. Thich Nhat Hanh drew our attention to a deeper potential in our relationship with our students based on two basic human needs: to love and to understand. He told us that when we are aware and respon- sive to our deepest human interchange with our students, the process of learn- ing flows naturally.” Thay emphasized to the educators that transformation of schools and soci- ety begins with their own transforma- tion through the practice of cultivating mindful awareness. After the retreat, Thay and his sangha inaugurated a Mindfulness Practice Center on the outskirts of Dehradun by planting trees and blessing the land. This center’s goal is to bring mindfulness into education through teacher training and help with curriculum development. His Indian sangha felt that this, and bring- ing mindfulness in general into the main- stream of society would be good ways to continue the work Thay initiated in India.
