"In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities; in the expert's mind there are few."

Fall Meditation Residential Retreat 2019
Retreat in Jerome Idaho
The Earth Holder Community is happy to announce an exciting new project that might interest you!
We are launching the Earth Holder Regional Community Builders!!
What? We propose to recruit, orient, network, and support a group of 20-25 experienced Plum Village practitioners from diverse backgrounds who serve as “spiritual organizers” who encourage and coordinate PV sanghas and members to engage in Earth Holding practices and mindfulness-based Earth and Racial Justice work in their local communities.
Why? The Earth is hurting. It is calling on us to help heal the deep wound of separation that has given rise to global warming, racial and social injustice, environmental degradation, and decline of reverence for life in all its forms. Given this, our mindfulness practice and Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings have much to contribute to our collective efforts to face our situation, handle the grief, numbness and fear, and attempt to curb the worst suffering.
For More information on this project please click on the “Earth Holders Sangha” tab under “Sangha Activities”
Our Sangha, located in Boise, practices in the Buddhist tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh (Thây). We have weekly meditation practices and meet one Saturday a month for a Mindfulness Morning. See our Sangha Activities page for details on these and other activities. All are welcome.
