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.
