Sat, April 29, 9:30 am– 3:00 pm
Practitioners from in the Washington DC and Baltimore areas are supporting the People’s Climate’s March in Washington on April 29, 2017.
Walking Together: We will gather with other Buddhist groups at 9:30 a.m. at the Upper Senate Park, a five minute walk from Union Station. (It will be easy to find other mindfulness practitioners as will have a large vertical banner with a picture of Thay -- see it below. OI member are encouraged to wear their brown coats.) After sitting meditation and Dharma talks, at 10:45 we will walk together to join the other members of the Faith contingent of the People’s Climate March. More information about the Buddhist gathering is available on the One Earth Sangha website.
Offering Housing: We are offering housing to mindfulness practitioners in the Plum Village tradition coming to DC for the Climate March. The Mindfulness Community Housing Board (http://mchb.createaforum.com) allows local practitioners to offer housing and out-of-area practitioners to find hosts. Please sign up if you can offer a place, or if you need a place.
