The be-in will be a live hosted evening on 26th March 2023 with sharings from the whole of the Plum Village UK community. There will be live and pre-recorded offerings – it could be poetry, music, readings, meditations, stories and messages of support for the project. We’re really looking to celebrate the diversity and talent of the PVUK sangha, with people of all ages and experiences represented, including monastics and friends of Plum Village. People will be able to drop in and out throughout the evening, keeping it on in the background like a radio station, or they could be present and watch the whole thing. It will be just over a year since Thay’s passing, so it will also be an opportunity for people to share memories and reflect on how Plum Village has touched their lives. This is a historic moment for the Plum Village UK sangha. It’s exciting to think that one day soon we will meet one another at the Being Peace Practice Centre, but this is a chance to get together before that.
It’s all about people coming together and sharing, so songs, stories, poems, music, readings, guided meditations and some pre-recorded items that show people in their homes, the local environment or their local sanghas. There will be constant live hosting, so it would be great if we could have hosts from different sanghas – Colours of Compassion, Rainbow Sangha, White Awareness Sangha, Wake Up London, Family Sangha, Earth Holders and people from different areas of the country in regional Sanghas. We’re open to ideas, so if you would like to be involved, please get in touch and let’s have a chat.
One of the things I love about music at Plum Village music is that there’s a real high quality and at the same time, everyone is encouraged to have a go. So it’s encouraging itself to improve all the time, but within the context of ‘it’s good enough’ and that feels like a real awesome mixture.
You are warmly invited to walk with Joe and the whole sangha as we set out on the historic journey to create the Being Peace Practice Centre together.
