Healing Spring Monastery (Monastère de la Source Guérissante), is a new Plum Village practice center that opened its doors in 2018. It is a charming rural refuge, located in Verdelot in the countryside east of Paris. The buildings were once a 19th Century convent.
About a dozen monks from Plum Village are now in residence at Healing Spring. The center is able to host about 20 overnight guests and is being expanded to accommodate 50.
Healing Spring is easily accessible from the capital by public transport (85 minutes from Paris – Gare de l’Est), making it a more comfortable destination for people travelling from Belgium, the U.K., and many other countries.
