We are delighted that Katie Sheen, mindfulness practitioner and teacher of mindfulness courses in the Plum Village tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, has chosen Amaranth for the launch event of ‘Tears Become Rain’. This book contains stories of transformation and healing inspired by the teachings of Buddhist monk and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh, who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King in 1967.

32 mindfulness practitioners around the world have contributed short stories exploring themes of coming home to ourselves, healing from grief and loss, facing fear, and building community and belonging.

At this event Katie will share her published short story of how she used mindfulness to cope with the moments when she was diagnosed with cancer in 2014. She will then offer an informal talk about the many other ways that mindfulness helped her throughout her treatment and recovery, and is happy to take any questions that you may have.

‘Tears Become Rain’ will be published by Parallax Press on 10th October 2023, and distributed by Penguin Random House. Your ticket price of £10 for this event is fully redeemable against the cost of the book should you wish to purchase it from our local independent bookstore Simply Books in Bramhall, and forms for pre-order will be available at the event. All proceeds from book sales are donated to the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation.

If you are unable to make the event but would like to pre-order a copy of the book you can do so at Simply Books Tears Become Rain
