Mindfulness Ireland is a network of people in Ireland who aspire to practice mindful living and mindfulness meditation according to the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, affectionately known as Thây, which means teacher in Vietnamese.

We are delighted that you are interested in becoming a member. Membership of Mindfulness Ireland is open to practitioners in the Plum Village tradition who live in Ireland or have a connection to the Irish sangha.

Mindfulness Ireland is part of the living body of Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings and the Plum village tradition. Through your generous membership donation you directly support the solidarity and continuation of our growing community. Sangha building is one of Thây’s greatest wishes and your contribution ensures that we as a community continue to support each Sangha and each member in Ireland.

Here is a list of some of the the practical ways your contribution will be used:

  • Maintenance and updates on the Website.
  • Payment for Paypal and Zoom accounts.
  • Insurance costs for Mindfulness Ireland events such as retreats, Sangha building days, (retreat deposits and payments)
  • Insurance for new Sanghas or existing Sanghas that are short of funds.
  • Payment for our accountant for yearly auditing of the Mindfulness Ireland accounts (as require by our legal company status).
  • Supporting our Plum Village Community in France and worldwide especially during these challenging times.
  • Please see our financial reports for further detailed expenses too numerous to list here.

We are currently exploring ways to connect with all of our members on a more regular basis so we would be delighted to hear from you if you have any suggestions or ideas which would support community connection and building.

We offer one equal membership type for all those who want to join us, and offer you the opportunity to choose how much you wish to contribute.  To become a member (membership lasts 12 months), please complete the following:
