The tour will happen in March for young people (ages 18-38) with Vietnamese roots that were either born or raised in North America. Wake Up and learn more at http://www.vietwakeup.org

Help us make this animated film which offers the wisdom of the Plum Village tradition to children. Based on the book, Planting Seeds: Practicing Mindfulness with Children, by Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village Community, the documentary will be shot in Plum Village this summer retreat. You can help by making a financial pledge of any size. Even $10 will be an enormous help in making the dream of completing the film a reality. Go to: http://www.indiegogo.com/plantingseedsfilm
