The Community of Interbeing is the name given to the network of people in the United Kingdom who practise Buddhism according to the teachings of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh. The name Community of Interbeing has been used since 1994, when the organisation was granted charitable. For some years before then, a small but growing group of UK practitioners had been meeting to practise together and hold days of mindfulness and short retreats, following this Buddhist tradition. Often they met informally just to enjoy each other’s company.read more
One of the best known and most respected Zen masters in the world today, poet, and peace and human rights activist, Thich Nhat Hanh (called Thây by his students) has led an extraordinary life. Born in central Vietnam in 1926 he joined the monkshood at the age of sixteen. The Vietnam War confronted the monasteries with the question of whether to adhere to the contemplative life and remain meditating in the monasteries, or to help the villagers suffering under bombings and other devastation of the war. Nhat Hanh was one of those who chose to do both, helping to found the "engaged Buddhism" movement. His life has since been dedicated to the work of inner transformation for the benefit of individuals and society.read more

I decided to try this out on my Diamondback Bikes Reviews site and even if it ain't pretty (my creations) it's so fricken cool, best thing since sliced bread and instant coffee makers. I love having a site that is so appealing. Well, to me anyway, I happen to like my crazy graphics.This is the easiest, funnest, got to have it theme ever.
