True Love in Action

Hanoi Peace Steps 5
Originally uploaded by d nelson

During the recent Hanoi retreat on Engaged Buddhism and UN Day of Vesak conference many friends shared with me personal experiences of practicing being mindful. As Thich Nhat Hanh describes the practice; it is to be aware of, and respond to what is happening in the here and now.

After weeks of staring at a laptop I am pleased the video editing is finished and the inspring lessons and experiences, shared from the heart, are available; for a limited time. A "mindful trailer" of just some of the excerpts of this 100 minute video can be seen at

A bow of gratitude for all who shared, and helped me in this production; especially Sisters Chan Khong and Dang Nghiem, and Brother Phap Do.

If you would like a copy of "True Love in Action: Engaged Buddhism with Thich Nhat Hanh and friends" please leave a comment at the video above.

Resting my eyes I get ready for the train to Plum Village.
