Winter Retreat 2016-17

Plum Village Winter Retreat Belltower

You’re warmly invited to join us this Winter for stays of one week (Upper Hamlet and New Hamlet only), two weeks or more during our Annual Three-Months Monastic Retreat. The Winter Retreat at Plum Village is a time for us to come to come back to ourselves, to practice looking deeply, and to strengthen our spiritual roots. It’s an opportunity for lay practitioners to offer their practice and helping hands to support the retreat. With shorter days and cooler nights, the winter is a cosy time of living, practising and working together as a community.
