Please visit the Plum Village website for news about the health of our beloved teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh, and for ways to support him with our practice.
Winter/Spring 2015 Issue
The new issue of the Mindfulness Bell offers Thich Nhat Hanh's beautiful Dharma talk, "Our Cosmic Body," in which Thay shows us why we never need to be afraid of being or non-being, birth or death. This issue also offers the gift of Dharma from two well-loved senior teachers––Thay Phap An and Sister Annabel Laity (True Virtue), who serve respectively as the Dean of Education and the Dean of Practice at the European Institute of Applied Buddhism (EIAB) in Germany. They share ancient wisdom from our spiritual ancestors and make it user-friendly for modern daily life.
The EIAB is a focus of this edition, with a wonderful collection of articles that show how Thay’s vision of Applied Buddhism has come to life and how a place of violence and discrimination has been transformed into an exceptional practice center.
Also in this issue, Joanna Macy and Jack Lawlor show us what engaged spirituality looks like in real life. And we learn how a sit-a-thon and a book club are having far-reaching and wonderful effects.
