I'm joining Service Space because ... I believe that small things matter and here in ServiceSpace, I find like-minded people.
A good day to me is when ... at the end of the day, I look back and have nothing to regret and that I have enjoyed my time and done things in a mindful way
My hero in life is ...Uncle Tu, a local organic farmer. He is about 70 years old and one of the two first farmers in Hue city pioneered organic farming and has inspired other local farmers to go organic.
My favorite book is ...The miracle of mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh
One thing I'm grateful for is ... being born into a poor, big farmer family and growing up close to nature

Last Saturday July 7, our very first Awakin Circle was hosted in a small, cozy living room in Citadel, Hue. A group of 8 young friends started the evening with an hour of stillness. Most of us are new to meditation but we surprised ourselves by remaining sitting meditation till the end. The sharing session after that was a great chance of listening to each other from the heart.
