Thich Nhat Hanh returns to Plum Village hermitage

Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese poet and peace teacher, has returned to his hermitage at Plum Village, France following more than four months of convalescence after a November stroke.

The 88-year-old spiritual leader was taken ill Nov. 1 and moved from his Plum Village monastery to a hospital in Bordeaux, France. The stroke occurred Nov. 11th while he was in the hospital. After weeks in the hospital he moved to a stroke rehabilitation clinic in Bordeaux where, his staff says, he has been making steady recovery gains.

This statement appeared last week on the Plum Village website
