Free and open to the public.
Join award-winning children's author and Buddhist teacher Rebecca Hazell for a children's storytime (for kids 5-10 and adults alike) launch of her new Shambhala Publications book The Sweeper: A Buddhist Tale. Inspired by Buddhist tradition, this original story tells how Padme, a young servant girl, meets the Buddha as she is sweeping her master’s house. When she laments that she is so busy that she would never have time to meditate, the Buddha gives her the instruction to “sweep and clean.” This simple mindfulness practice transforms Padme’s life, and when she encounters the Buddha many years later, he teaches her how to send compassion out to others. This beautifully illustrated picture book is a wonderful way to introduce children to the power of mindfulness meditation practice..
