Updates / New Version of the Plum Village App

Would you like to take Plum Village with you in your pocket? We are happy to say you can, with an updated version of the Plum Village app.

A short video about the app

Thich Nhat Hanh had a vision of an “Online Monastery” which would allow people to access Plum Village practices wherever they are. One manifestation of that vision is the Plum Village app. The app contains a treasure trove of guided meditations, talks, practices texts, songs and chants from Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village monastics.

It also has a “bell of mindfulness” feature which can be set to offer a bell as a reminder to come back to the breath intervals throughout the day, just as Thich Nhat Hanh has recommended and as people experience at Plum Village.

We can make good use of technology in order to help people go home to themselves and take care of themselves and their families.

The app is available for Apple and Android devices. It is offered for free thanks to much hard and loving work. Users are invited to donate if they appreciate it and want to support the app’s continued development.

Improvements to the app in the latest version include:

  • new guided meditations, chants and nature sounds from Plum Village
  • 500+ Dharma talks
  • all-new illustrations, calligraphies and icons
  • an overall smoother user experience
  • new and improved bell of mindfulness functionality with a scheduling feature 
  • the ability to highlight your favourite items so you can find them easier
  • the option to see the latest additions in terms of content

Thanks! My new daily routine is to do meditation with this app. It helps me calm down and relax.

We are grateful that many people have found the app useful and have recognized it’s positive qualities and “watered its flowers” via email and App Store reviews:

Meditation and mindfulness should be as accessible, loving and easy as this app. My life has become ever so peaceful and loving from practising the beautiful meditations, contemplations and all on this app. I’m forever grateful it arrived on my path. Thank you

Thank you, thank you, thank you. To each and everyone who has contributed to this rich and deep app. It nourishes me daily. I decided to do my own 21 day retreat and so I have time to discover all the delights behind each tab. Thank you dear friends. It is a gift for the world. Deep bow of gratitude

Sarah Dawson | Dublin

This is a great app with so much useful content, lots of guided meditations, talks and chants all in video or audio. I really appreciate the inviting the bell function which reminds me to practice being mindful of that moment. Thank you..
