About Us

Who We Are And What We Do

Our mission

Dong Xanh is a social enterprise situated at a tranquil space in the heart of Hanoi City. We are dedicated to creating a healthy, nourishing community where people can learn the art of meditation and bring the practice into daily life. By sharing and guiding each individual on the journey of discovering oneself, we plant the seeds of love and understanding in one’s heart so that they could lead their life in a happier way.

Our values

At Dong Xanh, community members live and work together as one family, being guided by four core values:

  • Simplicity: We find creative approaches to make the practice solid, simple and accessible to everyone.
