Mindful Connections Friday, October 21, 2011

Today, Lyndsey and David led another Mindful Connections tour. Our knowledgeable Guides introduced a group of seven seniors and their caregivers to the Buddha through depictions of his life. Lyndsey and David stimulated our visitors’ minds and memories by encouraging them to relate the artworks to their own lives.

The participants had many questions about the differences between the historical Buddha and other buddhas once we entered the Mirror of the Buddha exhibition, which just opened today.

This was the first Mindful Connections tour in this new exhibition!

Lyndsey helped our guests to see the smallest details and understand their meanings.
