Good News! Thich Nhat Hanh returns to Plum Village to Recuperate

The medical team at the University Hospital in Bordeaux have given their approval for Thich Nhat Hanh to leave the rehabilitation clinic and return to his Hermitage at Plum Village. Thay was hospitalised for four and half months after he experienced a severe brain hemorrhage last November.

In Plum Village a devoted team of monastic attendants are continuing to support him and care for him 24 hours a day, under the guidance of visiting doctors and nurses. He is receiving on-site physical therapy and speech therapy, and it is hoped that being back in his "spiritual home" will provide favourable conditions to treat his hemiparesis and allow him to make progress in swallowing and recovering his speech.
