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.

Summer Opening Retreat
The Summer Retreat is Plum Village's largest and most festive retreat. It is a time to be nourished by deep yet accessible teachings, the peace and splendour of the summer countryside and the joy of community. We welcome families, couples and individuals of all ages, and all nationalities, to join us for stays of 1 to 4 weeks during this joyful and colourful time of living mindfully together. Plum Village monks and nuns will offer special programs for children, teens and young adults. It is a wonderful retreat for those new to mindfulness practice in the Plum Village tradition, as well as for anyone interested in mindful community life.

Immediately following the Summer Retreat, Plum Village will close for a period in August, and monastics will be away leading retreats in Germany (10-23 August), and the UK (24-29 August).

In September (start date to be announced), we will open to guests again, with our Autumn Retreat, which will continue until our Winter Retreat starts around mid-November.

Registration for the Autumn and Winter Retreats will open later in the year.
