Photos / 2020 Autumn Rains Retreat

Following a tradition that dates back to the Buddha’s time, each year the Plum Village fourfold Sangha has a 3-month Rains Retreat. The monastic brothers and sisters use this time to deepen their practice. This year, on the 17th of September we formally opened the Rains retreat with the Face-to-Face Ceremony at Upper Hamlet. To prepare for this retreat, we also had a Releasing ceremony and Counting Sticks ceremony at our three hamlets. Please enjoy the pictures of these ceremonies.
