Zen and the Art of Saving the Planet: Live event at Blackwells, Friday 15th October 2021

Zen and the Art of Saving the Planet

We are very lucky to have a group of monastics from Plum Village visiting Edinburgh to take part in the TED Countdown Summit. This is part of the build up to the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow next month.

The monastics are spending time bringing Thich Nhat Hanh’s perspective to a dialogue involving artists, scientists and leaders from around the world. If you are lucky enough to be attending the summit please don’t miss Sister True Dedication’s talk in the Friday morning session.

Sister True Dedication is the editor of several of Thich Nhat Hanh’s books including the most recent one, released in time for COP26, Zen and the Art of Saving he Planet.

After the summit there will be an opportunity to meet the monastics and talk about the book at Blackwells Book Shop, South Bridge, Edinburgh from 7pm.

If we have further details about the event we will post them here. If not we’ll just see you there!

  1. We now have a couple signed copies of the book that can be borrowed from the Sangha. They’ll be available at St Marks in a couple of weeks time.
