Join us from March 25-29 to experience Thay’s legacy with teachings, meditations, and practices offered by nine senior Dharma teachers he has trained directly. Including Sister Chan Duc, Brother Phap Hai, Brother Phap Dung, Sister Dang Nghiem, Brother Phap Luu, Anh-Huong Nguyen, Shantum Seth, Larry Ward, and Peggy Rowe-Ward, this summit is a rare opportunity to connect deeply with the heart and home of our living Plum Village tradition and community.
Day 1: Building a Foundation of Mindfulness
Explore Thay’s core teachings on mindfulness, meditation, and walking meditation, supported by guided practices and reflections.
Day 2: Understanding our Mind with Buddhist Psychology
Dive deeper into Thay’s insight into the nature of our minds: How can we relate best to others? How can we bring mindfulness to our media consumption? And how can we work with our own strong emotions?
Day 3: Embodying the Beloved Community: Relationships and Community Building
Get transformative insights into relationships and the importance of community, looking at topics such as the meaning of love, healing the inner child, and how to connect meaningfully and compassionately with others.
Day 4: Interbeing: Tending to Mother Earth
How can we take refuge in the Earth, restoring our sense of ourselves as a part of a bigger picture? Discover concrete strategies to help heal our alienation from the Earth, nourish our gratitude, and dwell happily in the present moment.
Day 5: For a Future to Be Possible
How can we remain mindfully engaged with a world that’s in turmoil? Explore practices and skillful action that can help you bring courage, kindness, and resilience to the greatest challenges of our time.
As our world shifts, we hope you will join us in continuing to turn to our practice for refuge. When we take care of ourselves, we can earnestly say to others, “I am here for you.” Our world needs our solidity and calmness now more than ever.
