How can we be truly present to ourselves, to each other and to earth in these times?

In this episode Amisha meets Phap Linh a Zen Buddhist monk from Plum Village. 

Phap Linh shares the story of his journey from the corridors of Cambridge University, via his ancestral French village, to being ordained as a monk at Plum Village, a meditation centre founded in France by the Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hahn after he was exiled from his homeland. He speaks about life in monastic community, the nature of commitment, finding joy in service and joining the Extinction Rebellion. 

Together, Amisha and Phap Linh speak about how we can bring the experience of our interconnection into the activities of our daily lives. Phap Linh reveals to us how we can learn to see the sun in a carrot, and how much cloud is in a glass of water.
