This weekend I attended a Mindfulness Retreat in the Tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. It was put on by the Heartland Community of Mindful Living lead by the dharma teacher Joanne Friday. It was a transformative and refreshing experience, but that is not what I want to talk about right now. What I want to talk about it this women I met there. Perhaps some of you have heard of Dr. Mary Pipher. When I was talking to her I didn’t know who I was talking to. Now I know. Author of Reviving Ophelia and her most recent book The Green Boat: Reviving Ourselves in Our Capsized Culture. Here is a talk she gave recently about her newest book. I believe there is significance in that I would me this women in context of this Buddhist retreat.
