Healing Spring Monastery - Plum Village

Give more people a chance to touch the peace and joy of Plum Village

Plum Village needs your help to realise this dream. We need to raise 1.300.000 € to buy the property and to do the necessary renovations. Legal and administrative costs are included in this budget. We know this is a large amount, but as a strong worldwide sangha we can make this possible. Every donation makes a difference.

Healing Spring Monastery will be a new Mindfulness Practice Centre in the Plum Village tradition close to Paris. Lately the Summer Retreat and several other retreats are fully booked months in advance. Each year thousands of new practitioners discover the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and want to implement them in their daily lives. Practicing side by side with the monastics of Plum Village gives us the perfect opportunity to do that.

Plum Village, close to Bergerac, isn’t a feasible option for everyone. By founding a new monastery in the vicinity of Paris, the monastics hope to bring the Plum Village experience within reach of more practitioners.

Help us continue the work of our beloved teacher Thich Nhat Hanh by planting seeds of mindfulness close to Paris. Together we can grow a beautiful new practice centre in the Plum Village tradition.

Sister Giac Nghiem shares her dream

Why do we need a new Practice Centre near Paris? We are lucky to have a small monastery called “Maison de l’Inspir”, in Noisy-le Grand, near Paris where we welcome our lay friends to practice mindfulness 4 days a week. Our friends follow the practice of our Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.
