Join us on our weekly Monday night meditation to hear from one of the Plum Village monastics, Brother Phap Vu. Because of our guest, our evening will extend to 8:45 pm instead of 8:30
Phap Vu describes himself:
Who is this Phap Vu? – I'm still working on that one. Nonetheless, I was born in Chicago, Illinois but spent most of my life in Southern California. I began my practice in the Dharma through the Chinese Chan tradition in the mid 90's. It was through my experience practicing at a local temple that I was inspired to nudge in the direction of monastic life. Eventually, in 2003 I was ordained by Venerable Master Thich Nhat Hanh in Plum Village, with the name Thich Chan Phap Vu. In 2011, I was ordained as a Dharma Teacher. Presently, I am still committed to the monastic path, delving into Buddhist psychology as well as Buddhist history. I am also still committed to connecting with people and communities, helping them along their path if I'm able.
