"If the world is to be healed through human efforts, I am convinced it will be by ordinary people, people whose love for this life is even greater than their fear. "
— Joanna Macy

Dear Earth Holders, 

We hope that you are continuing to feel connected to the global mahasangha and that these practices are nourishing the remembrance of recognizing ourselves as the Mother Earth. Today we are invited to share the practice of love letter reading "Our Journey of Eons" with a guided meditation. There are also additional mindful resources from Plum Village to support our practice as we near the close of COP26. Look out for 2 live offerings on November 12th.

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
