Heart of Tokyo,Yokohama & Kamakura Sangha


We are a community of friends in the fifth year of practicing mindfulness in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh and Plum Village, in the heart of Tokyo and Kanagawa.





We welcome everyone to join our mindfulness practice of total relaxation, sitting, walking, singing,..etc and monthly recitation of the Five Mindfulness Trainings in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh and Plum Village. The practices are simple, easy, yet deep and lovely.

This month, we are offering our practice online via Zoom, instead of meeting at the Osaragi Jiro Memorial Museum in person. We are offering two sessions on the day. The morning session is our usual sangha practice with check-in, guidance and sitting meditation, etc via Zoom, and the afternoon session is going to be live from Plum VIllage ! With Sr.Trai Ngheim and a senior dharma teacher Sr. Insight (Tue Nghiem) from France. For this session, we will inform you what media we will be using. (We are still figuring out what might be the best media for this)
