Listening to Thay's Talk

December 24, 2011. 105-minute dharma talk and chanting with Thich Nhat Hanh as he gives the annual Christmas Eve talk from Lower Hamlet, Plum Village. The sangha is in the 2011-2012 Winter Retreat and this is the first talk in English.

Our practice is to go home in every moment. Breathe and you are alive. Many of us have succeeded in that practice. When we do this, we also become the home for other people.


  • not allow ourselves in touch with the suffering
  • the practise is to touch the suffering
  • create energy to heal
  • allow our bodies to release the tension
  • you don't need anything, it is the wonderful of here and now
  • the earth is made up of non-earth elements
  • cannot take mind out of the body
  • cannot take body out of the mind
