Peace in every step: In memory of Thich Nhat Hanh

Vietnamese Zen master and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh died on Jan. 22. He was 95 years old. A funeral and cremation ceremony took place Jan. 29 at Vinh Hang Memorial Park outside Huế, Vietnam. Members of the Order of Interbeing – the monastic community Thich Nhat Hanh established with Sister Chan Khong in 1966 – recited some of the venerable teacher’s writings including “Contemplation on No Coming No Going.” This prayer was created for funeral ceremonies and includes, “Since before time, I have been free. Birth and death are only doors through which we pass, sacred thresholds on our journey. Birth and death are a game of hide-and-seek.”

Mindful Moments: Thich Nhat Hanh part 3

Today we continue our 4-part series honoring the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh. Erin Easton is a Colorado native whose wandering spirit took her on a journey all over the globe leading her to the mindful practice that healed her mind, body, and spirit and brought peace into her life. She began her study of meditation at the Shedrob Choekhor Ling monastery outside of Geneva Switzerland. After a year of meditation and philosophy classes she participated in a retreat at Plum Village in France. This is where she fell in love with mindfulness and changed the focus of her master’s degree in French to the effects of mindfulness and meditation on language acquisition. She participated in a Vipassana retreat and did a three month study internship at Tara Mandala Buddhist Center outside of Pagosa Springs Colorado, but finds her true mindful roots in the Plum Village Tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. She now lives in Montrose, CO where she owns New Leaf Mindfulness Coaching offering group mindfulness and yoga classes as well as individual coaching and nature retreats.

Debating the best book of 1922, a re-issue of a key work by Thích Nhât Hanh, and poetry on the streets of Cambridge.

Books published one hundred years ago include Emily Post’s “Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home,” James Joyce’s “Ulysses,” and Claude McKay’s “Harlem Shadows.” The Boston Public Library is hosting a Hundred Year Retroactive Book Award, with three local writers debating the merits of each book and making a case for why theirs should take the prize. Joseph Nugent, a professor at Boston College, who specializes in Irish studies, Joyce studies, and digital humanities, will defend “Ulysses.” Boston Poet Laureate, performer, educator, MFA candidate at Emerson, and author of “i shimmer sometimes, too,” Porsha Olayiwola, will speak for McKay’s collection of poetry. And Meredith Goldstein, author of the Globe’s long-running “Love Letters” column, as well as two novels and a memoir, will make a case for Emily Post’s book of manners. The hybrid debate, which will take place in person and online via zoom, will be moderated by Kennedy Elsey, and the winner of the best book of 1921 — Yevgeny Zamyatin’s “We,” Ludwig Wittgenstein’s “Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus,” and Luigi Pirandello’s “Six Characters in Search of an Author,” will be announced. The free event takes place Thursday at 6:30 pm at Rabb Hall at the BPL and on Zoom. To register, visit
