The Venerable Thich Chuc Hoi presided.
Matt McDonald researched and presented “Mindfulness of the Body.”Chuc Hoi asked the group “How do you feel when you meditate?” The responses included: “Sometimes really relaxed”; “it depends on the circumstances”; “I meditate in the morning and in the evening to start and end my day”; “ I feel peace, clarity, harmony”; “relieves tension”; “meditate to fall asleep”. William shared that when thoughts invade your concentration when meditating, take them and release them. Meditation can actually become a “24 by 7” routine with practice. There is no right or wrong way to meditate-just focus the best you can.
