Magnolia Grove Monastery was established by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh to share the practice of mindful living.

This 120-acre residential monastery and mindfulness practice center rests peacefully in Northwest Mississippi. It is a place to rest with the present moment and to live peacefully with the faithful friend, our breathing.

The monastics at Magnolia Grove Monastery are happy to share with you starting on October 31st until November 21st, the monastery welcome fully vaccinated friends with proof of vaccination and children under 12 years old to join us for the Day of Mindfulness on Sundays.
