Brother Chan Huy has been my mentor for several years now. I first met him at the 1999 Santa Barbara retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh. I was aspiring to the Order of Interbeing at the time, but my mentor was not able to attend the retreat. Chan Huy stepped in, giving me great care and attention. I quickly realized why he was so beloved, even by the most experienced Dharma teachers. A husband and father of two teenaged daughters, he is a master of lay mindfulness practice. Not a moment goes to waste. Everything is fuel for mindful living.
Chan Huy comes from a family with four generations of Thich Nhat Hanh’s students, from his grandmother to his two daughters. Born in Vietnam, Chan Huy was raised in France as a Vietnamese Buddhist. He now lives in Ottawa, Canada where he works as an engineer. His clear pragmatic teaching style helps us understand and deeply touch the practice of mindfulness. Chan Huy's warm and engaging manner emanates joy for the practice. His name, translated as “True Radiance,” captures his essence. Chan Huy is among the most accomplished and articulate of Thich Nhat Hanh’s Dharma teachers.
Please join us for our fall retreat with Br. Chan Huy October 3 - 5, 2008 at the Marillac Center in Leavenworth, KS.
