Walking to forgive and love those whom we have difficulties
“We know that what nourishes and sustains Thầy’s spirit the most, is to hear all the ways that his students, both lay and monastic, all over the world, are continuing to put his teachings into practice in their daily life and in society. To celebrate Thầy’s “continuation day” on October 11th, we are inviting all of Thầy’s hundreds of thousands of students to practice walking meditation, and to forgive and love those with whom they have difficulties. This is a beautiful way to continue Thầy in the world, and nourish his spirit while he is still with us. May the energy of the Bodhisattva of Great Compassion continue to embrace our Teacher, our community, and all those who face difficult moments during this time.”
– The Monks and Nuns of Plum Village
Join us as we engage in walking meditation on the Barre Town Bike Path Sunday October 11th from 1-2:30pm. We will meet at the Barre Town Elementary & Middle School Bike Path entrance promptly at 1pm. In preparation for the walk we invite you to contemplate someone (this may be yourself) you would like to forgive and/or love someone whom you have difficulties. We encourage you to write down your intention to forgive/love and bring it with you on the walk. Midway through the walk we will enjoy moments to pause, acknowledge our intentions, and welcome the mindfulness bell into our practice.
