Winter Retreat

Plum Village Winter Retreat Belltower

You’re warmly invited to join us this Winter for stays of 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.

Christmas & New Year Celebrations

Thay-and-santa

You are warmly invited to join us for one or two weeks during the Christmas and New Year period. It is a very special time of year in Plum Village, with music and singing, as well as mindfulness practices and deeply moving celebrations on both Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. It is a time to enjoy profound dharma talks and the strong energy of togetherness as a spiritual family.

Lunar New Year (Tết)

Plum Village Tet Dragon Dance

You are welcome to join the Plum Village community for our celebrations of the Lunar New Year, or “Tết” – the most important festival in Vietnamese culture. Please note that our formal practices of sitting meditation, walking meditation and silent meals are suspended, and replaced with informal practice. Therefore this week is appropriate for those already familiar with Plum Village practice.

The Spring Retreat is a wonderful opportunity to practice renewal and transformation with our residential community of over 200 monks, nuns and lay practitioners.

We invite you to join us for a deep experience of mindful living for a one-week or two-week retreat, as Mother Earth stirs from slumber and new blossoms begin to appear.
