Mindfulness with Dr. Ian Prattis

Join us for a session on Mindfulness with Dr. Ian Prattis. The session will begin with a wellness chant. The talk is taken from the opening chapter of his latest book – “Our World is Burning: My Views on Mindful Engagement.” Climate Change through the eyes of a terrified nine year old and how to deal with it through developing Mindfulness. Ian Prattis, Zen Teacher, Anthropology Professor Emeritus, peace and environmental activist, was born in the UK. He has spent much of his life living and teaching in Canada. His moving and eye-opening books, essays and poetry are a memorable experience for anyone who enjoys reading about primordial tendencies. Beneath the polished urban facade remains a part of human nature that few want to acknowledge, either due to fear or simply because it is easier to deny the basic instincts that have kept us alive on an unforgiving earth. Prattis bravely goes there in his outstanding literary work. A stone tossed in the waters of life. Everyone welcome.
