Thây & Walk the Wight

I was contacted by Angie of the Lake Buddhist group the other day with some information on upcoming events. Angie’s group is part of the “Community of Interbeing UK” which is the network of people in the United Kingdom who practise Buddhism according to the teachings of the Vietnamese Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Thây, as Thich Nhat Hanh is affectionately known, is making a rare visit to the UK in August. He will be offering two public events; an Evening talk in London on the 11th of August: “Global Ethics for our Future” and a Family retreat in Nottingham from the 13th - 18th of August: “Living Mindfully, Living Peacefully”.

These events are likely to be very popular so early booking is advisable, there is also an “early bird” reduction for the retreat if you book it before March 15th.

Angie also gave a heads up on Buddhist involvement in the forthcoming “Walk the Wight” on Sunday the 16th of May! A group of local Buddhists will be making an eight mile walking meditation as part of the Walk. You can sponsor them at the "Sangha Sisters (& Buddha Brother)" page on JustGiving.

The event is in aid of the Isle of Wight's one and only Hospice which is very much loved and respected for the wonderful service it provides to the community.

(I will keep you all posted as to news and developments about the walk.)
