Thread: Thich Nhat Hanh health update

  1. #21
    An update on Thay's health - he's in San Franciso now - from Plum Village on 24th December .(He'll be 90 in 2016)

    Our monastic centers in the United States and Europe are now a month into our traditional annual practice of the three-month Winter Retreat, observing ninety continuous days of mindfulness practice, without leaving the monastery to teach outside. In this spirit, the attendants taking care of Thay in San Francisco have also opened a Winter Retreat practice period with Thay, including early morning sitting meditation, walking meditation, silent meals, watching videos of Thay’s Dharma Talks and participating in Dharma sharings.

    Every day, Thay has enjoyed joining the brothers and sisters in all of these practices, and we can see that practicing with the community is an important source of spiritual nourishment for Thay, supporting his recovery in every respect.

    Does anyone know how Ven Thich Nhat Hanh's health is progressing ? There doesn't seem to be any recent news about it on the Plum Village website.

    Hi all. A friend has just returned from plum village. She reports that Thay is in good spirits and attended the dharma talks. Although he is paralysed on one side and cannot speak, he still was able to lead walking meditation from his wheelchair and could communicate through gestures and facial expressions. He seems peaceful and happy and as ever full of love and compassion. Wonderful news.

    Love Jonno

    From the Plum Village website on December 9th:

    Thich Nhat Hanh flies to Thailand

    As Plum Village enters the fourth week of our three month Winter Retreat, the days are getting shorter, the air fresher, and the energy of peace, stability, harmony, and togetherness deepening day by day.

    Elder Dharma Teachers have been offering inspiring talks, exploring the Noble Eightfold Path on the theme “In the Footsteps of Thay.” Thay has been wholehearted in his participation on Days of Mindfulness, joining walking meditation and listening in on the Dharma Talks as his health permits.

    One week ago, Thay communicated a clear and determined wish to travel to Thailand. Thai Plum Village, on the edge of the Khao Yai National Park, is the largest practice center in Asia in Thich Nhat Hanh’s tradition, with over 150 monastics disciples.

    New update on Thich Nhat Hanh:

    Sister Chan Khong on Thich Nhat Hanh: He’s Getting Stronger Every Day

    Melvin McLeod: Following his stroke three years ago, Thich Nhat Hanh is now resting and recovering at Plum Village in Thailand. How is he doing?

    He cannot stand up on his feet yet, but he is stronger and stronger every day. He has started to say a few words, although not very clearly. Sometimes we sing songs like, “I have arrived, I am home in the here and now,” and he’ll say “here,” “now,” and so on. He is making good progress, but it is slow.
