Ken Jones 1930-2015

With sadness we announce the death of Ken Jones on Sunday 2nd August. Ken was a Buddhist teacher, Haiku and Haibun poet, author of the New Social Face of Buddhism, Everyday Buddhism and many other writings. An activist throughout his life, he was the founder of the UK Network of Engaged Buddhists. As a Zen and Chan practitioner he believed in a “radical culture of awakening” in which we need to do “inner work” to enable our “outer work”. His retreats gave activists tools to enable this work. He will be much missed.
