According to venerable Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, individuals practice mindfulness if they learn to see themselves as a part of the objects that they are in contact with. Hanh uses the term “inter-be” to describe an individual’s awareness of their connection to materialistic objects that are linked to spirituality. For Hanh, to inter-be means to recognize the essence of materialistic objects by thinking beyond the materialistic elements of the objects. Furthermore, people learn to inter-be with materialistic objects by realizing that they co-exist with the elements of the earth. With Hanh's teachings in mind, this presentation will examine mind mindfulness within the Fine Arts and beyond.
