Day of Mindfulness

November 7, 2018

We will no longer be having Thursday nights at the Yoga Tree.  We have had a long strong run of twelve years of Thursday nights but the Green Papaya is going to change its focus to our

Days of Mindfulness. 

The rain has stopped, the forest is beautiful and green, the air is fresh.

This is a perfect time to enjoy the wonders of life and reconnect to ourselves.

You can also meet us at Wat Palaad at 10am if you do not want to walk up.
