A Senior Dharma Teacher in Thich Nhat Hanh tradition since 1994, Chan Huy has been teaching, giving talks and leading mindfulness retreats all over America.
"Born in France of Vietnamese parents, Chan Huy grew up in Vietnam until he was 18 then immigrated to Canada where he now lives. His clear pragmatic teaching style helps us understand and deeply touch the practice of mindfulness. Chan Huy is among the most accomplished and articulate of Thich Nhat Hanh’s Dharma teachers."
Mike McMahon, Creighton University Medical Center.
Chan Huy's gentle words touched our sangha like a dharma rain. He skillfully laid open new understandings of a text as he shared deeply from his own personal experience. Humble and sincere, he reached our hearts, soaking us in our own experience of being fully alive in his presence. I look forward to learning more from his wisdom.

Dharmacarya Chan Huy, MS, MBA, CPC has successfully integrated mindfulness meditation and buddhist ancient wisdom into his professional life as well as in his personal and family life.
His knowledge and deep understanding of the mind functions come from his lifetime meditation practice and its direct applications:
- in his work career as an Engineer, a Project Manager, a Director and an Executive; and
- in his spiritual life as a dharma teacher to a number of communities of mindful living in the US and Canada.
These are the ingredients from which he draws his exceptional coaching competencies. His deep listening skills and his clear analytical mind allow him to quickly understand the difficulties (said and not said) and establish a feasible and result-oriented coaching plan.
