Volunteering at Plum Village - 2015

My family would like to spend the July of 2015 volunteering at Plum Village Mindfulness Practice Center in Southern France.

This center is the home to Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's community, and July is the month set aside especially for family practice. As we have benefitted greatly from attending retreats with Thich Nhat Hanh's community in the United States, as well as from our practice at Clouds in Water Zen Center and Compassionate Ocean Dharma Center, we would like to share that practice with the families who will be visiting Plum Village this summer.

We also feel that our stay in Plum Village will help us to bring the beautiful practice of Thich Nhat Hanh's style of mindfulness back to our friends here in Minnesota.

We had planned to do this trip in 2014, but Sosan contracted Lyme disease so we had to postpone. This year, we are ready to make it happen!

We need funds to pay for our flight to Paris, train fare to Bordeaux, donation to Plum Village and misc. camping supplies. 

Please help us reach our goal. Thank you!
