At the invitation of Reverend Dixon and The Coalition, Uplift, and Stand as One, Indigo Sangha hosted a Covid-safe, Interfaith Sit-Walk-Listen for Black Lives event in the style of Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism.

Day of Mindfulness: April 6th, 2019
More than forty beginning and experienced practitioners joined Indigo Sangha for a day of mindfulness with Plum Village Dharma Teacher Leslie Rawls. It was a fun event of self-care and together we cultivated our ability to touch the wonders of life and peace in ourselves and the world. Leslie offered instruction on meditation and mindfulness practice. Activities included guided sitting meditation, a mindful silent meal, deep relaxation, a time of mindful sharing with each other, and a Dharma talk by Leslie on touching peace and justice.
Leslie Rawls is a Dharmacharya (Dharma Teacher) in the 43rd generation of the Lam Te Dhyana School. She received Lamp Transmission from the Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh during the 2008-2009 Winter Retreat in Plum Village, France. Leslie has studied Buddhism since 1970 and been actively involved with the Plum Village community for more than two decades.
The Day of Mindfulness was funded in part through a generous grant from the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation.
