Event Type

Thich Nhat Hanh is a global spiritual teacher, poet and peace activist. In his quiet way, he became one of the important figures of our time. His work for peace, within and without, continues to touch many lives. This Zen master’s difficult path to loving Jesus Christ was paved amidst the creativity and violence of the 1960’s and 70’s thanks in part to heartfelt friendship with Thomas Merton, Daniel Berrigan and Martin Luther King.

Beginning with one of Thich Nhat Hanh’s contemplative practices, we will then reflect on his life, his Christianity and the beautiful concept, practice and lived experience of interbeing.
