Magnolia Grove and a Retreat with Thay

From my screen porch . . .

In September of 2011 and again in 2013,  I continued deepening my mindfulness practice by attending a five-day mindfulness retreat at the Magnolia Grove Monastery and Mindfulness Practice Center.  Interestingly, this monastery is located just outside of Batesville, Mississippi and is only 30 miles from where I live in Oxford.  The beloved teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh, or Thay as he is affectionately called, came to America on tour and led these retreats.  He was assisted by a number of the nuns and monks from his monastery at Plum Village in France.
