A Spiritual Journey to Vietnam: Celebrating the Life of Thich Nhat Hanh

Pete, Marge, and Keith went to Vietnam in January where they met up with Buddhist practitioners from 31 countries to honor the life of Thich Nhat Hanh. January 22 was the 2nd anniversary of his death, an important milestone in Vietnamese culture. It marks the end of the grieving time and is the beginning of Thay’s becoming a spiritual ancestor. The 3 members of Open Heart Sangha participated in several ceremonies that celebrated Thay’s life and visited the site where he founded the original community that began the Plum Village Zen Buddhist tradition. They will give highlights of their spiritual journey and share photos of some of their experiences and the ceremonies that were held. There will also be time for a meditation.
