Nhap Luu – Stream Entering Meditation Center was established on February 1, 2010, in the beautiful outback near Beaufort, just two hours west of Melbourne.
Five monastic disciples of Thich Nhat Hanh, together with the support of many lay sanghas in Australia, founded the community at Nhap Luu and held the first monastic Rains Retreat there in May 2010. Since then the community has grown, and the monastery’s now extends to 55 hectares of bush, securing Nhap Luu’s future as a tranquil and peaceful place for years to come. We are very lucky to enjoy the presence of kangaroos and other wild life on and around our land.
All people of all nationalities and all faiths and beliefs are welcome to visit Nhap Luu. We never ask anyone to abandon their traditions and practices. We are simply here to share our learning about the wonderful benefits of mindfulness meditation and the insights offered by our teacher Thich Nhat Hanh and Shakyamuni Buddha. Nobody needs become a Buddhist to participate with us.
The sisters host Days of Mindfulness every Sunday at the monastery, and joyful “working bee” community days, to which all are welcome. We also host mindfulness events in nearby towns, and larger retreats throughout the year, both at Nhap Luu and beyond. Visit the Nhap Luu website
