Valerie Brown guides us through the Plum Village’s practice of the Three Earth Touchings to help us heal from within. Valerie is a former prosecutor and a dharma teacher in the Plum Village tradition founded by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

This four-part series begins with an introduction to the Three Earth Touchings practice, followed by each of the Earth Touchings individually. The First Earth Touching is on connecting with our ancestors, the second is on connecting with all people, and the third is on letting go of limitations. This is a mindfulness practice to accompany the article “How to Fight Without Hating.”
