Autumn 2015 Issue

“Aware of the suffering” is the phrase that begins each of the Five Mindfulness Trainings, and it is a theme for this issue of the Mindfulness Bell. In “Love without Frontiers,” Thich Nhat Hanh prescribes a beautiful antidote to despair and isolation, and gives practical guidance on how to love.

This issue invites us to deepen our understanding about the suffering of racial injustice. In "Deep Listening Workshop," Joanne Friday offers a model for how to respond effectively to violence and hatred. Additional articles show how to engage in self-inquiry, create a path of racial and social equity, and build beloved community.

This issue also sheds light on other forms of suffering imprisonment, illness, grief and how they can be transformed with compassion and mindfulness. And we offer an interview with the filmmakers of Walk With Me, a forthcoming documentary about Plum Village and the inner and outer journeys of our monastic sisters and brothers.
