Welcome! This website exists to share information and foster connections among the broad community of practitioners in the Plum Village tradition throughout Northern California.

We know you are there, and it makes us very happy.

About

The Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism is the practice community and tradition founded by Thich Nhat Hanh.

There are many sanghas (communities) practicing in this tradition throughout Northern California and the San Francisco Bay Area.

With this website, we hope to foster greater connections among those many sanghas. And we will share information about sangha events (Days of Mindfulness, retreats, etc.) with the broad community of practitioners.

This website is currently managed by Dylan (Clear Insight of the Heart): dylan ~at~ tweney dot com.

Most of the photos on this site are from Renee Burgard at Flowering Tree Sangha or from Jonathan Borella and My Tong at Sugarplum Sangha.
