Being a filmmaker-artist, deeply interested in the well-being of people and mother earth, I have started to make educational films in collaboration with Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village community to help spread his urgent and vital wisdom.
The insights of inter-connectedness and peace of Thich Nhat Hanh are as simple as they are profound:
"Many people suffer deeply and they do not know they suffer. They try to cover up the suffering by being busy. Many people get sick today because they get alienated from Mother Earth.
The practice of mindfulness helps us to touch Mother Earth inside of our body and this practice can help heal ourselves. So the healing of people should go together with the healing of the Earth. This is the insight and it is possible for anyone to practice.
Change is possible only if there is a recognition that people and planet are ultimately one and the same. You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. In that insight of inter-being, it is possible to have real communication with the Earth."
Mindfulness is the method, peace is the result. We can live it, here and now.
