Good news,  let's go as a Sangha!  Here is a message I received today about Thay's visit to Vancouver next year.
With hope this all works out,
My Dear Friends,
As many of you are aware four monastics were in Vancouver this week meeting with a very kind sponsor and with the University of British Columbia. They were here to try to arrange a five day Residential Retreat at UBC and a Public Talk with Thich Nhat Hanh in August 2011. I received the following letter from one of the brothers.

"Dear Ones,
Greetings from the lovely campus of UBC. How beautiful it is here! each of us has been touched and refreshed by the natural beauty and by the warm embrace of the Sangha. Our visit has been very fruitful indeed and barring any major roadblock, it does look like we shall be bringing Thich Nhat Hanh and the Sangha to Vancouver in 2011. This is wonderful news and we look forward to joining as a fourfold community to manifest this flower!"

It would be wonderful if each of you could forward this email to at least five friends who may have an interest in being present at these very special events. I shall continue to keep you all up to date with any further developments and will be happy to add any other interested parties to this email list. Thank you all so very much.

Here is the web link to Plum Village and Thich Nhat Hanh

With mindful hugs from beautiful B.C.
