Jan 02, 2013 Sending good vibes to Allan Lokos, Susanna Weiss, and all others in the plane crash
Allan Lokos is one of my peace teachers, in addition to Jun Yasuda, Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dalai Lama, Ram Dass, and more people. I have not yet met Allan, who is the founder of New York City’s Community Meditation Center and has a great book entitled Patience: The Art of Peaceful Living.
Allan teaches about peace, including being peaceful while traveling. Sadly, while traveling on December 25, Allan, his wife Susanna Wiseman, and the other passengers were injured — with two people killed — in a recent plane crash in Burma. I do not have details about the other passengers beyond that. Allan and Susanna suffered injuries including burns. Susanna Weis-Bohlen reports on Allan’s Facebook page:
Our dear friends Allan Lokos and his wife Susanna Weiss were in a terrible plane crash in Burma on Christmas day. They eventually made it to Thailand where Allan has had surgery but has burns over 30% of his body. Susanna is also burned and has a broken vertebra. Many of you know Allan from his wonderful, insightful talks on Buddhism at breathe books. Please send all your love and healing to them and I hope they are able to make it back to the states for treatment soon. Sending good vibes and prayers to Allan, Susanna, and the rest of those on his flight.
