We are pleased to announce the publication of a new book ‘Mindfulness – Walking with Jesus and Buddha’ by Sister Annabel Laity (also known as Sr Chan Duc).
Sister Annabel is an English Buddhist nun in the Plum Village tradition. In this book she shows how Christians can make mindfulness a part of their spiritual lives.
In the chapter called “The Bell” Sister Annabel writes, “If there is one thing that belongs to global spirituality it is the sound of the bell . . . In Buddhism, we say the sound of the bell brings us back to our true home. In Christianity, we say the sound of the bell brings us into the presence of God. There is really no difference between the feeling of being at home in our body and mind, and the feeling of being in the presence of God. They are just different words describing the same thing.”
