How do you activate peace amidst times of great difficulty? Monks and nuns from Thich Nhat Hanh’s Plum Village in France will be at the Rubin Museum for the New York premiere of the documentary Walk With Me, an intimate portrait of their monastic life and teachings. The film screenings are sold out, but if you don’t have a ticket, you can still join the monastics for a day of mindfulness and peaceful action.
Starting at Union Square Park, the monastics will guide a sitting meditation at 10:00 a.m., followed by a walking meditation that culminated with a chant at the Rubin. Additionally, visitors can encounter monastics throughout the gallery spaces all day and are welcome to join group meditations taking place in the spiral staircase before film screenings.
About Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village
Thich Nhat Hanh’s writings on peace and the practice of mindfulness have reached an audience of millions. He is the man Martin Luther King Jr. called, “an apostle of peace and nonviolence” when nominating him for the Nobel Peace Prize. Today, his Plum Village community of over 700 monks and nuns, based in rural France, is one of the single largest Buddhist monastic communities in the world.
