Updates / The Raft: Plum Village in your inbox

Created by the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation, Plum Village Monastery, Parallax Press, and the Plum Village App team, The Raft is a special weekly series during the pandemic, assembled to nourish and inspire your individual and collective mindfulness practice.

Why The Raft?

The Buddha compared his teachings to a raft that helps us cross over to the other shore – the shore of peace, freedom, and well-being. Similarly, this weekly series is a body of teachings and practices specific to this moment in our collective history.

We should use the teaching like a raft to bring us across the river. And then when we’ve crossed the river we can leave the raft there for someone else to use.

How do I receive The Raft?
