Just Because Our Eyes Are Open Doesn’t Mean We’re Awake – New Book From Gary Gach
September 9, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Author Gary Gach points out that just because our eyes are open doesn’t mean we’re awake. He invites us to shift from our “auto-pilot” approach to life, to a manner of living fully, moment-to-moment. Drawing upon his 50 plus years’ practice and his experience teaching in the tradition of beloved Vietnamese Zenmaster Thich Nhat Hanh, his is a candid, caring, down-to-earth voice, a guide through the many profound, holistic benefits of pausing … breathing … smiling.
Gary Gach is a writer, mystic, and lifelong meditator who has engaged in many roles: actor, bookshop clerk, dishwasher, hospital admin, office temp, stevedore, teacher, and typographer. Lay-ordained by Thich Nhat Hanh in 2008, he has authored eight previous books including The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Buddhism (Alpha, 2001). Gary lives in San Francisco.
