Hoa Tinh Thuong - Loving Flowers Mindfulness is a religious charity whose purpose is to advance Buddhism by:

  • Promoting the teachings and practices of Buddhist Mindfulness Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh’s and the Plum Village Tradition

  • Supporting Buddhist monks and nuns by organizing and sponsoring mindfulness activities, such as meditation retreats.

  • Embodying the Buddhist philosophy of ‘compassionate giving’ by providing food, health care, scholarship, and public welfare to the underprivileged, the homeless, and sick.

Hoa Tinh Thuong - Loving Flowers Mindfulness is committed to investing resources to achieve these goals. We’ve been supporting local Vietnamese communities in a variety of ways--from sponsoring youth education and elder,  building wells for drinking water, to gifting basic supplies of rice and sugar, to supporting hospital bills for the ill. As of 2017, we have been recognized as a 501(c) non-profit organization (EIN: 82-4752335).
