Beloved teacher Thich Nhat Hanh is celebrating his 89th birthday on Sunday, October 11. We hope you will join us in wishing him a joyous birthday as well as sending him healing energy as he continues to recover.
We are honored to share his words of wisdom through our calendars. Every time someone sees the calendar hanging in their kitchen or workspace, we hope they get a rush of inspiration, a profound spiritual teaching, or a centering of calmness. A travel engagement calendar that someone carries from task to task or appointment to appointment can become a transformative tool in addition to tracking time. Thay’s words and inspiration can be a wonderful companion throughout our days.
