About the event
While the Monastery is closed on this week, maybe you'd like to try out the Plum Village App, if you haven't already, to support your practice.
This completely free meditation app offered by The Centre for Applied Ethics has been downloaded by more than 500,000 people and offers an opportunity to experience a range of teachings from renowned Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and his Plum Village monastic community directly from an Apple or Android smartphone.
We even have a web version of the app, and two browser addons (for Chrome and Firefox) to help us maintain the insight of interbeing throughout the day by showing one of Thay’s calligraphy in every new tab.
As a visionary and forward-thinking Buddhist teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh had envisaged an “Online Monastery”, where people could get the feel of practicing mindfulness in a Plum Village practice center anywhere via their computer.
We are trying to realise part of this vision through the Plum Village App. Unlike the hugely popular meditation apps out there, it allows people to experience mindfulness in a Buddhist tradition.
