Father Eli was a large, roly-poly man whose smile told a thousand stories. He lived on a farm near Hattieville, AR and travelled a lot to teach. He was already in his sixties when I met him. Rumor has it that he survived more than eight heart attacks using the methods he taught us.
– Jerome Freedman, Mindfulness Breaks: Your Path to Awakening
NOTE: This month we celebrate my teachers, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and Father Eli, who taught me so much about meditation, “mind stories” and visualization.
My book, Mindfulness Breaks, Your Path to Awakening, celebrates Thich Nhat Hanh and Father Eli. The book was released last month. Chick on the link below or in the bio for more information.
May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!
All my best,
