Plum Village Autumn Leaf
Autumn Retreat
You are warmly invited to join us at Plum Village to experience mindful community living this Autumn. The schedule is somewhat lighter than the Summer or Winter, with time and space to simply enjoy the monastery atmosphere and the beautiful autumn landscape, some personal quiet time or restful walks. Please note that our program is slightly flexible, and so the end-date for our Autumn Retreat may be adjusted by a week or so. Please contact our registration offices before making travel arrangements.
