Global Ethics For Our Future – a public talk by Thich Nhat Hanh

Date: Wednesday 11th August 2010, 7.30pm (doors open at 6pm)

Venue: Hammersmith Apollo, 45 Queen Caroline Street, London, W6 9QH

‘We have the power to decide the destiny of our planet. If we awaken to our true situation, there will be a change in our collective consciousness’

This talk is a unique opportunity for people of all faiths and backgrounds to hear Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh offer his wisdom and guidance on the global issues and dilemmas that we are currently facing.

Thich Nhat Hanh (known as Thây to his students) is a world renowned Zen master, scholar and human rights activist. His experiences during the 1960s Vietnam War led him to develop the path of Engaged Buddhism – a practice that invites and empowers us to bring together spiritual values and practical action. This combination of dharma and real world understanding is almost unparalleled in the Buddhist world.

His recent books include The World We Have – A Buddhist Approach to Peace and Ecology and Calming the Fearful Mind – a Zen Response to Terrorism.

‘It is time to stop. Let us pause. It is time to seek true strength and security… it is possible to look at each other again with the eyes of trust, camaraderie, and love.’
