Events & Tours with Plum Village Monastics

In the Spring and Autumn, Plum Village monastics go out in small groups (or with Thich Nhat Hanh in larger delegations) to lead public events, retreats and days of mindfulness, either in Europe or further afield. These events are usually organised by local sanghas practising in the Plum Village tradition. They are an opportunity to experience the collective energy of a monastic-led mindfulness retreat, especially for those who cannot make it all the way to Plum Village.

Below is a list of upcoming events and tours, with information about how you can find out more.
