Border Collie Sangha Summer 2020: Love Letter to the Earth

 An All-Age Retreat

6.00pm Thur 13th August-3.30pm Sun 16th Aug 2020

Hosted by Border Collie Sangha at Wiston Lodge, near Biggar, South Lanarkshire ML12 6HT.

In the context of the Climate and Ecological Emergency, this All-Age Retreat will focus on Love Letter to the Earth that Thich Nhat Hanh wrote in 2013.

He calls on us all to “understand the Earth as a living, breathing organism” so we can heal ourselves, heal our lives and heal the earth, the plants, creatures and all the natural world as well.

We hope a gifted teacher will share how we can find healing ways of being as we learn more about the great challenge our children and grandchildren face.
