This shared space, facilitated by members of the Order of Interbeing, with dharma talks offered by lay Dharma Teachers, welcomes all friends.
On 11th October you are invited to a morning of mindfulness in celebration of Thay’s 94th continuation day, facilitated by Vari McLuskie and Teri West, supported by members of Wake Up and Heart of London sanghas and other volunteers.
The theme for the day will reflect this request from Plum Village:
‘What nourishes and sustains Thay’s spirit the most, is to hear all the ways that his students, both lay and monastic, all over the world, are continuing to put his teachings into practice in their daily life and in society.
To celebrate Thay’s “continuation day” on October 11th, we are inviting all of Thay’s hundreds of thousands of students to practice walking meditation, and to forgive and love those with whom they have difficulties.
This is a beautiful way to continue Thay in the world, and nourish his spirit while he is still with us. May the energy of the Bodhisattva of Great Compassion continue to embrace our Teacher, our community, and all those who face difficult moments during this time.’
Programme of the Morning:
There will be a Dharma talk broadcast live from Plum Village from 08:30 BST to 10:00 (ish!) for those who are able to join.
We will begin our programme at 10:30 with a welcome and Total Relaxation, followed by Love Meditation, time for Dharma Sharing (or if preferred, individual reflection), and song and poetry offerings, including a sangha ‘online choir’ singing a fresh arrangement of ‘Breathing In, Breathing Out’.
We will aim to finish at around 12:45 and will include a 15-minute break.
