You are welcome to join the Plum Village community for our celebrations of the Lunar New Year, or “Tết” – the most important festival in Vietnamese culture.

This is one of the more unusual and joyous weeks in the Plum Village calendar, centred around informal teachings based on traditional Vietnamese poetic “oracle reading”.

Please note that our formal practices of sitting meditation, walking meditation and silent meals are suspended, and replaced with informal practice. Therefore this week is appropriate only for those already familiar with Plum Village practice.

Please note: the Departure Day for this week is Monday 23rd February. Please arrange your travel for that day. Plum Village will then be closed to guests for at least two weeks, starting on February 24th. 

Registration for Tết will open on January 4th and will close on January 27th.
