Winter Retreat – Lower Hamlet

Dear friends,

Welcome to the registration for the Winter 2016-17 in Lower Hamlet.

This year, in order to create a strong collective energy of practice, the Lower Hamlet has divided the Winter Retreat into 2-week segments. Please select the segment you wish to stay for, in the drop-down box, and then click “Search for availability”. If you can only stay for one week, this is possible. But we ask you arrange your own transportation for your departure day.

During the Christmas / New Year period it is possible to stay either for one or two weeks.

If you would like to stay for more than 2 weeks please read about Extended Stays on our website first. Then register for 2 weeks and make a note in the “Notes” section of how long you would like to stay.

We warmly welcome applications to stay for whole 3-month winter retreat. Please read about the Winter Retreat. and Extended Stays on our website first. Then register for a dormitory for the first segment of the retreat (18 Nov – 2 Dec) and make a note in the “Notes” section that you would like to stay for the whole retreat. In fact, we invite all 3-month retreatants to arrive early (before the first segment begins), so please arrange to arrive and settle in on November 11th.


Please note: If you would like to visit us during the segment from 20 January to 3 February, 2017 please note that during that week Plum Village is celebrating Vietnamese/Chinese New Year, and there will be no regular meditation programs.
