Written by James Langton

Join us in this rare opportunity for a gathering with contemplative poet, author and silence facilitator Ando in the UK

Ando is a qualified Zen meditation and mindfulness teacher, and has devoted her life full time to the spiritual path since 2012, studying and residing in the communities of masters of Zen and Advaita. Now also a spiritual director, since 2017 she has also studied the paths of Sufism, Christian contemplatives and mystics of all faiths, seeking out the common root. A student of tea, she loves to share the experience with others in silence.

Ando will lead us in silence, traditionally served teas of China and Japan. She will then share a quiet talk on the poetry of silence, followed by selected readings of her own Zen poetry and that of the masters of Zen, Ch’an, Daoist and Sufi poetry.
