Plum Village is a zen-buddhist village in South of France belonging to world-famous zen-master Thich Nhat Hanh from Vietnam.
Thich Nhat Hanh was exiled from Vietnam and since has lived in France where together with Sister Chan Khong, he built up Plum Village.
Even Martin Luther King nominated him for the Peace Nobel Prize.
He supports orphans, refugees, political prisoners, buddhist monks and nuns as well as helps when there are nature catastrophes, and he is an environmentalist.
In November 2012, actress, singer, children's book author Eliane Chappuis, traveled to Plum Village and with the permission of Sister Chan Khong she filmed this documentary film ''One week in Plum Village''. Eliane shows in a straightforward way what a one week stay in Plum Village is like.
She shows the different practices like walking and sitting meditation.
How they eat in silence and stop everything they do when hearing a bell, to be aware of the present moment.
The documentary film is accompanied by music from the album ''Plumvillage Kid'' where Eliane sings poems by Thich Nhat Hanh.
Plum Village is a place to practice peaceful living. Please enjoy this journey to Plum Village and to finding inner peace!
