Winter Retreat
Winter Retreat
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.

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.
