  • Hi, im interested in the five-years monastic Training. What i need to do to become a monk for five years? (Im from Mexico)

    • Dear Andres,
      You can click on this link below to read more information about how to join the 5-year monastic training program. After that you can email the brothers to ask about when you can come. In the US, there is Deer Park Monastery or Blue Cliff Monastery where you can contact to ask about when you can come and start your training program. However, if you are interested in doing your training in Plum Village, France you can contact Upper Hamlet on During this time of closure it might not be possible, but once we are open again and your aspiration remains intact, you can contact us again. Good luck!
