Thich Nhat Hanh to visit New York City


The Zen Buddhist master and author revered for his teachings on the "art of mindfulness" will be visiting New York City in early September.

ThichNhatHanh_NYC Check the nightstands of spiritually minded New Yorkers and you’ll find a book by Thich Nhat Hanh. And good news, the Zen Buddhist master, who’s revered for his teachings on the “art of mindfulness,” will be visiting New York City in early September.

The global spiritual leader may have written more than 100 books—most recently Spiritual Ecology with Wendell Berry and The Art of Communicating—but he’s known for keeping his message sweet and simple.

His key teaching is that “through mindfulness, we can learn to live happily in the present moment instead of getting lost in the past and in the future. Dwelling in the present moment, is the only way to truly develop peace, both in oneself and in the world,” he says.

To add to the dose of high vibes at his live lecture, the Zen Buddhist guru (who lives in the Plum Village Monastery in the South of France) will be joined by 80 monks and nuns, all of whom practice his teachings on mindfulness, peace-making, and serving society all over the world. —Jennifer Kass

“The Country of the Present Moment: Wisdom for Global Peace and Happiness,” Saturday, September 7 at 3pm, $45–$65, Beacon Theatre, 2124 Broadway at W. 75th Street, Upper West Side, www.beacontheatre.com
