Plum Village: Zen Guided Meditation App – Main Categories

The Plum Village app is split into four easy-to-use categories – meditations, talks, resources, and bells of mindfulness:


Meditation is a deep practice that helps us generate peace and calm, master our mind, develop a healthy headspace, and get deep insights into ourselves and the world around us.

Meditations include deep relaxations, guided contemplations, silent meditations, and eating meditations. Whether you have a little time or a lot, and whether you want to be on your cushion or applying mindfulness in your daily life, there are meditations to nourish, inspire, and incorporate into your daily routine.


Listen and learn from the wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh: in question-and-response format, or full-length teachings.
Ask Thay includes hundreds of real-life questions asked to the Zen Master, like “How can we let go of anger? and “How can I stop worrying?” His answers are compassionate and infused with insight.

Dharma Talks are teachings given by Thich Nhat Hanh on how to bring Buddhist wisdom and mindfulness into our life. Rather than discussing theoretical concepts, he focuses on direct and clear teachings to relieve suffering and create happiness in our day to day lives. Topics include depression, PTSD, relationships, sexual abuse, fear, and dealing with strong emotions.


In Resources you can find a library of daily practices, chants, poems, and songs. These bring to life the practices taught in Plum Village monasteries around the world and offer ways to bring mindfulness into our world, wherever we are.


In Plum Village monasteries bells of mindfulness chime at regular intervals. Everybody stops and takes three mindful breaths to pause from their thinking or talking, breathe, and return to their bodies. The Bell of Mindfulness allows us to have the same reminder on our phone.

We can customize the bell to chime at different time periods. Settings include:
• Start time / End time
• Chime intervals
• Bell volume
• Daily repeating schedule

Regular use of the Bell of Mindfulness will cultivate more calm and relaxation in your life.


Why not give the Plum Village app a try and see how you can benefit from it? The app is a digital companion on your mindfulness journey. Created as a gift to the world, this free app contains invaluable resources to guide you towards inner peace and freedom.

Robert Appino ,

True gift of mindfulness- thank you

Firstly, to everyone who contributed to this app: thank you so much for putting time and loving energy into creating such a beautiful practice-nourishing resource.
I have enjoyed using the app multiple times a day for: silent sitting meditations, shorter meditations and throughout the rest of the day, listening to any time I have a free moment to be in touch with the practice of mindfulness. I have really enjoyed the short meditations that invite us to shine light on different parts: the body, thoughts / mind. The deep relaxations which I have been doing daily are a true gift. I have used these multiple times a day to stop and relax completely and catch up on much needed rest. I have found this so helpful.
It is really wonderful to have the brothers and sisters' varied contributions to the app. It is great to have the root mindfulness practices presented with invitations to shine light on different aspects of our practice.

All of the parts of the app are so useful and nourishing. I have benefitted much already from having everything on the app available every where at any time. The app is a calming anchor offering many kind opportunities and invitations to come back home to ourselves wherever we may be or whatever we are doing.
It is as though I am carrying a precious part of Plum Village with me to remind me of and enrich my practice anytime. It has been a joy sharing the app with family and sangha.

So wonderful a resource!

To all that made this possible, thank you. I was given a book (Present Moment Wonderful Moment by Thich Nhat Hahn) by a family member during a time of questioning in my life.

I carried the book everywhere to help guide me through times of forgetfulness. This app contains that and so much more as a handy resource and meditation companion.

I particularly like the ability to invite the bell to help center on the now when my thoughts may drift. Again, thank you.

Beautiful app

This is such a helpful app. I love that it is so thoughtful and includes so many avenues to approach mindfulness. There are guided meditations, songs, essays on a wide variety of topics, timed bells for silent meditation. And a few times I have found myself smiling at something funny! There is a lightness to it sometimes that makes me see things in a different way. Thank you for sharing this, I am looking forward to learning a lot from it.
