Meditation in the park

Meditation in the park

Mon, 23 Sep, 2013 - 14:08Thursday september 19th fifteen of us went to meditate in a rainy and windy park not far from the buddhist centre. In a quiet and modest way we want to show by sitting in silence, together, what is possible as a human being…We hope to do this on a regular basis be it cold or rainy, warm or stormy, whatever circumstances. We want to bring the image of transformation in the streets of Ghent…
