Spring Retreat (end of May)

Join us for one week of mindfulness practice
with the New Hamlet sisters this Spring

Dear friends,

The New Hamlet sisters warmly welcome you to a relaxed and joyful week of mindful living together. 

This immersive experience will include Dharma talks from Plum Village teachers, as well as sitting meditations, chanting sessions, walking meditations, mindful meals in community, mindful “service meditation”, deep listening in groups , and a “lazy day” to truly rest and unwind. 

Teachings and practice sessions will be offered mainly in English with French interpretation.

We look forward to practicing together.
