Thailand Adventure/Jizo Takes a Break

Posted on

Dear readers,

I’ve been busy getting ready to head off on a month-long adventure to Thailand — and in fact I am writing this post while sitting on an Amtrak train and hopping on a wireless connection somewhere near the Albuquerque train station. (Taking the train to LA, then flying to Thailand.) So this will be brief!

The Jizo Chronicles will be on hiatus over the next few weeks as I’m on my journey. During this time, I’ll be visiting Ouyporn Khuankaew and the International Women’s Partnership for Peace and Justice in Chiang Mai, Thailand, as well as going on a 10-day elephant trip with musician Jami Sieber.

I hope absence makes the heart grow fonder, and I look forward to sharing stories from these adventures with you when I return. In the meantime, I’ll be putting up a few posts on The Liberated Life Project, so do stop by there.

Until then, may you and all beings be happy, safe, and free from suffering…

in kindness,





About Maia

I've been practicing and studying the Buddha way since 1994, and exploring the question "What is engaged Buddhism?" since the late 90s. As former executive director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, Turning Wheel, I had the honor of meeting and working with many practitioners of engaged dharma, including Roshi Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, Alan Senauke, and Robert Aitken Roshi. I write about socially engaged Buddhism on my blog, "The Jizo Chronicles," as well as on the theme of personal and collective freedom on my website, "The Liberated Life Project." Through my Five Directions Consulting, I offer support to individuals and organizations who aspire to integrate awareness into their work.
