FRI 18 May: 7.30 – 10pm  Deepening Your Practice

How to come to our true home. Featuring a talk, touching the earth and other practices. For those already having some experience of Thich Nhat Hanh’s or similar traditions

The practice of Touching the Earth, also known as bowing deeply or prostrating, helps us return to the Earth and to our roots, and to recognize that we are not alone but connected to a whole stream of spiritual and blood ancestors. We touch the Earth to let go of the idea that we are separate and to remind us that we are the Earth and part of Life.
