Published DateSANBORNTON — The Sanbornton Congregational Church – UCC in partnership with the Sanbornton Town Library is sponsoring a Film Series held on the first Wednesday of every month at the library. Show time will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. on the second floor of the library. Everyone is welcome.
The second film, to be shown on March 6, will be " Touching Peace" with Thich Nhat Hahn (2005- 90 minutes).
Monk, poet, scholar and peace activist, Thich Nhat Hanh is a leading Vietnamese Zen teacher. This film is a talk Thich Nhat Hanh presented to 3500 people in Berkeley, California that captures the spiritual leader's flair for addressing complex human issues in simple terms and documents his philosophy as he speaks intimately on connecting to one's roots, building community, learning true love, and living in the present moment.
The video includes sections on Hanh's techniques and meditations for daily practice to help bring peace to the world. He talks about the seeds of consciousness, which can include not only peace, joy, and happiness but also anger, hatred, and fear. Always emphasizing the positive, Thich Nhat Hanh suggests ways we can
take good care of our anger by embracing it.
A discussion will follow the film led by Rev. Ruth Martz.
