Our neighbouring Sangha, the Border Collie Sangha, is running a residential retreat at the Wiston Lodge in the Scottish Borders:
“When we practice mindfulness, we naturally become attuned to the planet. We are able to listen to ourselves and each other with mindfulness and compassion, we increase our ability to listen to our planet. Practicing compassionate listening to the Earth, we hear that the planet desperately needs us to reconnect with the Earth and with each other. There is no difference between healing ourselves and healing the Earth.”
From Love Letter to the Earth by Thich Nhat Hanh
You are warmly invited to join us at our summer retreat from 21st to 24th May, 2015 guided by Br Phap Vu of Blue Cliff Monastery New York, in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. We will gather as a Sangha of all ages to support our practice of Mindfulness together.
Wiston Lodge with its extensive grounds and natural environment, merging upwards to Tinto Hill, gives us the opportunity to deepen our awareness of Interbeing with Nature and with one another. The doors are wide open for our Wake Up friends, and we hope that everyone young and old will feel nourished and enriched through the explorations of the practice guided by our visiting monastic, Br Phap Vu of Blue Cliff Monastery New York.
Through our time together, we will explore the power of the teachings of the Five Mindfulness Trainings in our personal lives and society, with the opportunity of receiving the Transmission of the Trainings.
