Pine Gate is the voice of Ottawa’s Pine Gate Mindfulness Community who practice Engaged Buddhism inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dalai Lama and Sulak Sivaraksa – great teachers for our times. Pine Gate is also the nucleus of Friends for Peace. The Mayor of Ottawa, Jim Watson, had this to say: “Friends for Peace is an outstanding organization that does very important work, promoting, strengthening and maintaining peace, planetary care and social justice within our communities and the environment.”
Friends of Pine Gate also contribute to the journal. Submissions are invited, articles of approximately 700 – 1,000 words, poems and insights that reflect engaged practice and personal experience. The community has many leaders and the newsletter is an organic outcome of collective insight. Effortlessly it appears. It is a Quarterly online Buddhist Journal, appearing three times a year. Quirky!
