Oh Paris, how fine you are..
Just landed here for a few days
from Plum Village.
My first stay in Plum Village in the summer with spectacular
Plum Village is celebrating 30 years today of living, teaching

and sharing mindfulness. There'll be big festivities (monastic style) with an exhibition of his calligraphy and an exhibit of Thay's life journey and teachings.
I shared strawberries with the Buddhas on the hill;-)
Delivered the pewter 'being peace'
medallions to the bookshops
and received the french calligraphy organized for
the next medallions.
to share a bird's eye view..
formal lunch procession to the great hall.
embrace of love amongst the coming and going.
excited retreatants for the first lotus.
It delights me that we're now able to deliver message jewellery in a range of alloys for every budget. People's response to the pewter medallions and it's inexpensive price points of $30. inspired us to create other pieces in pewter for the up andcoming events. We will show them at Grail Lady Faire in Bancroft next week,Muskoka Arts and Crafts in Bracebridge mid July and will of course have them in our new Studio Gallery. (but call first)I'm always interested in what's in your heart,please share.
sending love from Paris.. mindfully,
