With Dene Donalds, Valerie Brown & Marisela Gomez
Sangha members have been deeply touched by the many circumstances unfolding around us, resulting from racial injustice and oppression. Breathing is the foundation of our practice. Our breath not only connects us to life but supports us to transform our suffering — turning it into soil where the flowers of understanding, compassion and peace can grow.
Plum Village UK is hosting a short event to offer the Beloved Community a space to breathe together, to show our solidarity to life around us, to breathe cultivating the energy of love and compassion, and to remind ourselves of our commitments to our Five and Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings.
We will enjoy the power of our collective breathing and recite the Contemplations on the Five Mindfulness Trainings: A New Paradigm for Racial Justice & the Global Pandemic, by Marisela Gomez and Valerie Brown for this specific time.
