Plum Village Hong Kong
Founded by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, Plum Village began in 1982 as a small, rustic farmstead, and has today grown into Europe’s largest Buddhist monastery.
“At Plum Village we weave mindfulness into all our daily activities, training ourselves to be mindful throughout the day: while eating, walking, working, or enjoying a cup of tea together. Plum Village is a home away from home, and a beautiful, nourishing, simple environment in which to cultivate the mind of awakening.”
Its center in HK was founded in November 2008 as a non-profit making, charitable, religious and educational organization to promote the teachings and practice of Buddhism in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh and Plum Village, France.

Palmer who’s an anthropologist in exploring different realities.
