Established by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh to share the practice of mindful living.

Nestled on 80 acres of beautiful woodland in the southern Catskill region just two hours from New York City–a tranquil sanctuary with pure mountain air and meandering trails and streams, offering space to rest, heal, and grow.
