The practice of mindfulness is about being present and awake to each moment of our daily lives. Teacher Brother Kai Li, a Senior Monastic from Plum Village, is an experienced teacher and enjoys leading retreats and days of mindfulness to large and small gatherings around the world. He shares his experience of mindful living with great humour and depth. Having visited Ireland a few years ago he is delighted to return to Galway.

 *Plum Village, near Bordeaux in southwest France, is the largest international practice centre in the Plum Village tradition, and the first monastic community founded by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. Thich Nhat Hanh is a global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist, revered around the world for his powerful teachings and bestselling writings on mindfulness and peace. His key teaching is that, through mindfulness, we can learn to live happily in the present moment - the only way to truly develop peace, both in one’s self and in the world.

Mindful Way @ NUI Galway
Two decades after Ireland's "Black '47" Finland suffered a famine that was described as "the last great famine in Western Europe." This exhibition describes the Finnish experience and invites comparisons with the Great Hunger. Curated by Dr. Andrew Newby of the Aarhus Institute for Advanced Studies, it is the product of years of research into the relatively unknown Finnish famine.
