Netherlands & Flanders Spring Tour 2024

In 2024, we can rejoice in the arrival of monks and nuns from Plum Village, who will guide mindfulness events at various locations in the Netherlands and Flanders. They are continuing the life’s work of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh. 

The theme of the events will be Inclusiveness.

Each of us must ask ourselves, how large is my heart? How can I help my heart grow bigger and bigger every day? The practice of inclusiveness is based on the practice of understanding, compassion, and love.

When you practice looking deeply to understand suffering, the nectar of compassion will arise naturally in your heart.

Maitri, loving kindness, and karuna, compasion, can continue to grow indefinitely. So thanks to the practice of looking deeply and understanding, your loving kindness and compassion grow day by day, And with enough understanding and love you can embrace and accept everything and everyone
