Plum Village - all hamlets

Plum Village Autumn LeafYou are warmly invited to join us at Plum Village to experience mindful community living for a one-week or two-week retreat this Autumn.

Autumn is a peaceful yet active time in Plum Village, with a full daily program of mindful activities (sitting meditation, walking meditation, mindful eating and so on) as well as joyful community work days.

The schedule is somewhat lighter than the Summer or Winter, with a little more time and space to simply enjoy the monastery atmosphere, some personal quiet time or a forest hike nearby.

Our mindful community working sessions offer many opportunities for relaxed interactions with the residential community of monks, nuns, lay men and lay women.

Plum Village Dharma Teachers will offer twice-weekly teachings on Thursdays and Sundays.


Registration for the Autumn retreat will open in the Summer.

Arrival days are every Friday, starting Friday 16th September 2016.

It is possible to stay for more than two weeks with us during the Autumn Retreat. Please contact the registration office of the hamlet you wish to stay in for more information.
