Ven. Bikkhu Bodhi Leading WalkBy Carla Prater – Planning for the 2012 Walk to Feed the Hungry is now in full swing. We have walks planned for the month of October in Ann Arbor, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and another in the Southern San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, and Sherwood Forest in England. We have a wonderful group of coordinators heading up these events, which are all run by local committees. Please check our website over the summer as we post more information about these events and look for information on how you can participate!

Walk Guides

As part of our planning for the October walks, we have compiled a Local Coordinator’s Guide and an Administrative Guide. The Coordinator’s Guide is a resource for local committees that are holding the walks, with information and tips we have learned over the last two years. The Administrative Guide will focus on what the BGR staff and volunteers can do to make the process smoother for the local committees. We hope these Guides together will make our 2012 Walks the best ever!

The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page.
