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

  • Magnolia Grove Monastery Monastics
    Breathe and smile, you are alive

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 monastery continues to remain physically closed until further notice. When the time comes to reopen, we will share here on the website, social media pages, and through our newsletter.
