The Venerable Thich Nhat Hahn continues to make progress in his recovery, and arrived in San Francisco on 11 July "to receive a more intensive rehabilitation program that could be specifically adapted to his needs." Plum Village is inviting those who may wish to help to make a donation to assist with the additional costs associated with this new treatment. Donate at www.thichnhathanhfoundation.org/healingthay.
From the Plum Village news release:
To all Plum Village Practice Centers,
To all Practice Centers and Sanghas worldwide,
To our Dear Beloved Friends,
Since our last update, Thay has been able to communicate more clearly a very strong wish to intensify his recovery program. Thay is very determined to do everything possible to recover both his physical movement and speech. After many options were presented to Thay, he made a clear decision to travel to the United States to receive a more intensive rehabilitation program that could be specifically adapted to his needs.
We are happy to report that Thay arrived safely on the West Coast of the United States on the afternoon of July 11. In order to make the flight as safe as possible for Thay, he was flown in a private jet, generously offered by a kind friend. He was accompanied by Sister Chan Khong and the team of attendants who will be continuing their round-the-clock care for him during this new stage of recovery. Thay’s rehabilitation will be guided by a team of distinguished neurologists specializing in stroke and cognitive rehabilitation at UCSF Medical Center.
