Share the Wealth, with Ron Laney: Practicing Peace – My Time with the Vietnamese Monastic Community of Magnolia Grove Monastery

by Mark Chmiel

In the summer of 2013, when Ron Laney arrived at Magnolia Grove Monastery in Mississippi, a practice center in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, what he had planned on was simply staying for a week or two and participating in their volunteer work exchange program. What he hadn’t planned on was the number of times that he’d return and the affection he would develop for the Vietnamese monastic community that resides there.

Ron is an artist, a graphic and website designer, and someone inviting simplicity into the various aspects of his life.
