Our Teachers

Thich Nhat HanhThich Nhat Hanh is one of the most beloved and respected spiritual teachers of our time.  A Buddhist teacher, author, poet, peacemaker, human rights activist, environmentalist, and community leader, Thich Nhat Hanh (or Thây) as he is known by his students), has led an extraordinary life.

He travels regularly, leading retreats on the art of mindful living.  He lives in Plum Village, located in southern France, where he teaches, writes and gardens.

We have been gifted with the opportunity of having senior Dharma teachers from the Plum Village tradition visit us regularly.  With gratitude, we honour the gifts they have brought us by continuing the practice in our sangha.
