In case you haven’t heard, Saturday 3 June is Earth Care Day, and June is also Buddhist Action Month with the theme `Connecting for Change’?

Many people around the world will be coming together in various ways to express and celebrate our care for the earth and all its life forms. If you would like to be a part of this, there is an opportunity in Oxford to meet on 3 June, between 10.15 and 12.30, for a contemplative litter pick on an area of land not far from the train station. The morning is being organised and facilitated by Ally Stott, for many years one of the Oxford Gaia House day retreat co-ordinators.

Ally writes: `The intention is simple, to pay attention to our experience as we gather together (a little like the wombles with a contemplative twist!). Let’s be curious about our embodied experience of being here as a diverse unity of existence. We will have some time for silence and some time for sharing.’
