Plum Village 2011

Dear Friends,

I hope you are well and happy and enjoying the coming on of springtime.

I am writing for a number of reasons. One is to thank you for all that you did to create conditions for me to be able to be in Plum Village (see photo!). I wanted so much to find a way to show my gratitude... so.... I paid very close attention to my practice, took many notes and will do my best to share what I learned when next I see you. I thought that was the best thing I could bring back for all of you. Please accept my heartfelt thanks....

There will be a formal transmission of The Five Mindfulness Trainings at the Clear Heart Sangha on Sunday the 20th of March at 6 PM.  Some of the Mind Tamers have received the transmission and can answer your questions — if you have any — tomorrow. If you are interested in receiving the transmission, please fill out the application and return  it to me as soon as possible.

In the meantime, there are some Days of Mindfulness coming up that are listed on calendar page. A deep bow of gratitude to our own Ellen and Shana for their generosity and hard work in creating this beautiful way to keep us connected and informed.

We are so blessed to have each other. Please take very good care of yourselves and enjoy every moment....remember,

This is it!

with much love and the optimism of a snowdrop blooming in the midst of the melting snow for you,

Joanne
