A 31-day practice commitment during October

About this event

“When we recognise the virtues, the talent, the beauty of Mother Earth, something is born in us, some kind of connection; love is born” (Thich Nhat Hanh)

It is clear that we need to take more care of Mother Earth. This autumn, in the build-up to COP26 we are offering an opportunity to:

  • Deepen our connection with Mother Earth
  • Find practices that support us to care for our planet
  • Practice together with others who feel the same

The opportunity is to commit to a 31-day practice programme during October which includes:

  • Self Practice listening to the 10 Love Letters to the Earth (also called Earth Contemplations on the app)
  • Attending Practice and reflection sessions on Weds 6,13,20,27th October 19:00 – 20:30
  • Creating your own Love Letter to the Earth
  • Attending launch and close sessions on
    • Friday 1st October 7:30 – 8:15 a.m.
    • Sunday 31st October 10:00 – 12:00 a.m.
  •  An opportunity to join a dedicated Facebook group to share reflections and connect together daily

Volunteer supporters and participants are welcome to join this programme to share inspiration and insights.

This month-long practice commitment is facilitated by Dharma Teacher Vari McLuskie. Offers of support are welcome from experienced practitioners who can attend the whole programme, and who could lead practice, facilitate dharma sharing groups, offer readings or songs etc.

Tickets are by donation, minimum £1. We rely on your support in order to prepare for and offer this event. At the end of the course you are invited to practise Dana (generosity) by voluntarily offering an amount appropriate to your financial means that will support Plum Village UK Dharma teachers to continue to offer the teachings freely.

“It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community – a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the earth.” (Thich Nhat Hanh)
