The francophone retreat, organized every year for over 20 years, has always been an opportunity to bring together the lay francophone community in a warm and joyful atmosphere. Last year, for the first time in 20 years, Plum Village was unable to hold this annual “family reunion”. At the end of April 2021, the first online francophone retreat was organized with the title “In the joy of being together”. We came together to practice mindfulness and learn how to cultivate fearlessness, stability and inclusiveness in ourselves. There were about 400 participants who joined the retreat.
We would like to invite you to enjoy some photos of this retreat.
