Dharma teachers Thay Phap Ho and Sister Dang Nghiem offer a recitation of the Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings of the Order of Interbeing. Thich Nhat Hanh says in this book, Interbeing, “If we practice these trainings deeply enough, we will recognize that each training contains every other training. Studying and practicing them can help us understand the true nature of interbeing-we cannot just be by ourselves alone; we can only inter-be with everyone and everything else. To practice these mindfulness trainings is to become aware of what is going on in our bodies, our minds, and the world. With awareness, we can live our lives happily, fully present in each moment we are alive, intelligently seeking solutions to the problems we face, and working for peace in small and large ways. I hope you will join me in practicing these mindfulness trainings or the equivalent from your own tradition. It is crucial for our own well-being and the well-being of the world.”
You may like to recite these once a month to help nourish your practice. Please enjoy!

Thanks for the 14 Mindfulness Training recitation! It will be so helpful for me to recite them at home.
I would like to request that in the future, we can have dharma talks based on how to practice these 14 Mindfulness Trainings more deeply.
I am an aspirant but I haven\'t been able to hear much about how others practice these trainings deeply so I hope that, you would take this into consideration to share more on these trainings that I absolutely love!
Thank you for all your effort in spreading Thay\'s beautiful teaching!
with a bow of deep gratitude,
