Every morning between April 13–May 1, 2015, Helen Mirra walked around Aspen focused on developing the half-smile, as described by Thich Nhat Hanh.
Anyone was welcome to meet her at the gazebo in Paepcke Park. After a brief orientation, participants set out, separately, to walk/hike for a number of hours, focused on developing the half-smile, and then met again to have a simple lunch together.
