Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet, and peace activist. He has been my primary Buddhist teacher for over 15 years, and I have had the privilege of studying and practicing with him on several long retreats.
In 2005, I was ordained into the Order of Interbeing (Tiep Hien) by Thich Nhat Hanh after years of practice and apprenticeship in his tradition. I have co-founded a retreat center, Morning Sun Mindfulness Center in Alstead, NH, based on his teachings.
Everything that I teach (or know) about self-compassion practices and training I have learned from him.
I have created a 12-week online course called the Foundations of Self-Compassion to be a structured program for developing self-compassion based on the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh.
