21-Day Retreat Begins June 1

In the last four years, I have not taken any breaks from posting the dharma talks of Thich Nhat Hanh on this blog space. It has been a great joy to listen to all the talks and to repost them here for you, the listener.

As I write this, I am sitting at LAX awaiting my flight to southern France and Plum Village Meditation Practice Center. My intention is to take a complete technology break and to participate with the sangha on the 21-Day Retreat with the theme the Science of the Buddha.

I will still listen to each talk (in-person) and take a few notes for you. Upon my return, I will resume posting the talks from the retreat. If you can’t wait, the brothers of Upper Hamlet may post the talks on our Vietnamese site Lang Mai.

Until then, may your day be well.

  7. Dear Kenley,

    We met at the retreat and I briefly thanked you for your recordings of Touching the Earth. At the time, I didn’t realize you were also responsible for maintaining this site as well! Many, many thanks for all your efforts. This is an infinitely valuable resource I have benefited from immensely.
