Teachings & Interviews

Dharma Talks are given in either French, English, or Vietnamese with simultaneous translation into the other two languages. Translation into other languages (for example, German, Dutch, Spanish, or Italian) are available depending on the need.

Thich Nhat Hanh, due to his advanced age and many demands on his time, is not able to give personal interviews to students and guests who come to Plum Village. You are encouraged to write to him about your practice and difficulties, so he can offer a response in his talks. A letter can be passed to him during your stay, or sent by post to any hamlet. It is also possible to ask a question directly in person during the “Question and Answer” sessions with Thich Nhat Hanh that take place once a week during big retreats. Dharma Teachers and experienced monks and nuns are available to offer private consultation sessions to those in need throughout the year. Please enquire in the hamlet where you will stay.
