Monastics in Ann Arbor and Detroit 9/5-10


Sam Ewalt from the Bluewater Community of Mindful Living writes:

A traveling group of monastics from the Plum Village tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh will be visiting Michigan during the next two weeks with many events planned in Lansing, Ann Arbor and Detroit. Please see the schedules below and participate if you can. Most of the events are free.

The two week visit culminates with up to a thousand people from all religions expected to participate in sitting and walking meditation at the State Capitol on Monday, 9-15 at 2 pm. Walk Together, Sit in Peace
