List Your Sangha

We are happy to share information about Sanghas that practice in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh via our directory.



A community of Buddhist practitioners is referred to as a "Sangha" (Sanskrit for community). The three jewels of Buddhism are the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha; this third jewel offers a deep well of support and wisdom for both monastics and lay practitioners. As Thich Nhat Hanh reminds us, "If you are without a sangha you lose your practice very soon."

We offer this Sangha directory with the hope that it will help you to connect with other practitioners and nourish your practice. Maintained by volunteers, the directory is a work in progress, and we rely on practitioners around the world to help us keep the information current. If you'd like to add or change a listing, or if you have questions, please send a detailed message to

Order of Interbeing

The Order of Interbeing (Làng Mai in Vietnamese) is a community of both monastics and lay practitioners who have committed to living their lives in accordance with the Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings. It was established by Thich Nhat Hanh and his associates in the mid-1960s at a time when the Vietnam War was escalating and the teachings of the Buddha were desperately needed to combat the hatred, violence, and divisiveness enveloping his country.
