Home (for the holidays)

When we talk about going home, it is helpful to be reminded that our true home is in the here and the now. The practice of mindfulness is one of constantly arriving in the present moment.

This guided meditation is adapted from one described by Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh in a Dharma Talk he delivered at Plum Village, France on July 16, 1996. You can read the text of that talk at PlumVillage.org.
