Clean your space, and your mind will follow. This is the wisdom Buddhist monk Shoukei Matsumoto seeks to impart in his book, A Monk's Guide to a Clean House and Mind. Sweeping, polishing and tidying may seem like drudgery, but these everyday routines are considered spiritual practices in Buddhism, a reflection of our respect for and interdependence with the world around us. At this talk, Matsumoto explains how we can take cleaning from a chore to a contemplative practice, leading us down the path to inner peace.
Followed by a book signing reception.
