Trish Nelson is a spiritual peace activist, author, teacher, and student of Vietnamese Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh. She participated in two Compassionate Listening Project delegations to Israel and the Palestinian Territories.   In 2007 she accompanied Thich Nhat Hanh and a community of monastics and lay practitioners on a journey to Vietnam to participate in three powerful “Grand Requiem” ceremonies to transform and heal the wounds of war.  She is passionate about promoting the active re-wiring of consciousness, offering methods to move from ingrained, devitalizing patterns into ways of being that sustain ourselves and all life.  Her approach is to start with concrete and humble actions, like mindful walking, slowing down, and noticing our auto-pilot reactions to others, the news, and events of the outside world.
