About this Event

Love Letter to the Earth - an online Retreat with Murray Corke 11am-3.30pm Sat 15 August

[Coronavirus Pandemic 4th UPDATE: We had to move the retreat online and now offer it on Saturday only this year]

In this Climate and Ecological Emergency, our Retreat will focus on Love Letter to the Earth by Thich Nhat Hanh.

Thay calls on us to “understand the Earth as a living, breathing organism” so we can heal ourselves, our lives, the earth, plants, creatures and all the natural world.

Murray Corke will share healing ways of being as we learn about the challenge our children and grandchildren face.

• Mindfulness Meditation

• Dharma talk

• Walking Meditation

• Touching the Earth

One Booking per person please. We are not charging for this retreat. Instead Murray asks you to respond as you can to the June appeal from Sister Chan Khong:

"I will not ask for much, as I and my monastic siblings know that you might be struggling yourself. My request is that if you have a little bit to spare, you might consider offering one “handful of rice” each month. The Plum Village monastics live simply, our daily food budget is £4 per person. A gift of £28 provides food for a monastic for an entire week. Small numbers can make a big difference. Your gift—no matter how small or large—will help provide food and healthcare for the Plum Village monastics worldwide and pay for our basic utilities while we spread the Dharma online and do our best to help ease the suffering in the world. Please consider offering a donation if you can."

The doors are wide open for all our friends. We hope everyone young and old will feel regenerated through the explorations of the practice.
