Thich Nhat Hanh had a vision for making good use of technology, to be able to share the practice with people on their mobile phone… so the Plum Village app is the realisation of that vision: to have Plum Village wherever we go. That means we have freedom.Brother Phap Luu
Taking care of feelings
This guided meditation offered by Brother Phap Linh is one of the hundreds of resources included in the app. Please take a few minutes to sit or lay down and practice taking care of your feelings.
This is by far the most useful meditation app I have ever encountered. It is also free, which is a huge blessing!Alex Dam, US (App Store review)

How to support the app
This app and all its content is provided for free and that’s how we’d like to keep it! But we can’t do that alone; we need support. Because we want to offer new content, keep improving the user experience, add more features to help people live their lives with wisdom and joy. So we’ve started the Oak Forest Family. As trees do in the forest, we also take care and support each other. Please join our family!
