Practices for COP26
Daily practices offered through the Plum Village community to support the COP26 UN Climate Conference. 

"When we look into our own bodily formation, we see Mother Earth inside us, and so the whole universe is inside us, too. Once we have this insight of interbeing, it is possible to have real communication, real communion, with the Earth. This is the highest possible form of prayer."
— Thich Nhat Hanh

Dear Sangha,

Here we are at day 12 of COP26. You have been practicing with over 1,000 sangha siblings around the world who have been receiving these daily practices. Thank you for generating collective energy towards the healing of our precious planet. We will share space for going forth from COP26 as a sangha with a couple of live offerings. There is an Extinction Rebellion Interfaith Online Earth Vigil with PV Brothers (see below for details) as well as a guided practice with dharma sharing. The guided practice + dharma sharing will be at 3pm EST. The zoom details follow. We hope you will be able to join the sangha in coming together and sharing a live practice call.

In Gratitude,

More About the EHC

Who we are… 

The Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism is a global community of mindfulness practitioners who follow the teachings of Venerable Zen Master Thích Nhất Hạnh (a.k.a. “Thay,” meaning “teacher”). The Earth Holder Community is a branch of the Plum Village tree that applies Thay’s core teachings on engaged Buddhism, mindful living, social and racial justice, and inter-being with Mother Earth at this time of ecological crisis.

Earth Holders’ aim to “bring mindfulness, compassion, healing, and non-violence to protecting ourselves, each other, all beings, and the Earth.”

"The path of brotherhood and sisterhood [and kinship] is more precious than any ideology or religion.”

Thich Nhat Hanh
