Volunteering – Well-being: Mind and Body

We would like to invite experienced practitioners in the Plum Village tradition to support us from April 22 – May 5 as volunteers in the Well-being: Mind and Body Retreat with the sisters of the Loving Kindness Temple (“New Hamlet”).

Breathing in, I calm body and mind.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment.
I know this is the only moment.

We will offer our service, working in harmony together while we learn ways to take care of the mind and body in the present moment, to cultivate a deep well-being both individually and collectively.

Practical Information

Volunteers will arrive on April 22nd to settle in, meet the monastics and the volunteer team. We will learn, practice, play, and prepare for the retreat together.

Volunteers will stay a few days after the retreat, departing on May 5th to help us wrap up the retreat and join the farewell gathering.

You will camp during the retreat and contribute €200 for your stay.

**We only consider applicants who have practiced at one of the Plum Village centers.

All volunteers, please provide:

  • A copy of ID card
  • Proof of health insurance and visa if needed.
