New Hamlet - Plum Village
This retreat is fully booked, registration is closed. We hope to see you in one of our other retreats.
The retreat will include long walks through country lanes
New Hamlet will be hosting a special “Mindful Health and Wellness Retreat” August 18-25, 2017.
You are warmly invited to join us for an exploration of mindfulness and its relationship to health, wellness and body centered practices.
This Mindful Health and Wellness Retreat offers a full program that allows you to cultivate awareness through movement, stillness, relaxation, mindful consumption and meditation in the Plum Village tradition. There will be daily sessions of sitting meditation, total relaxation, walking meditation and a variety of workshops.
We will develop our spiritual energy by nourishing ourselves through community life, meditation and dharma talks from Plum Village monastic dharma teachers. Younger monastics will contribute through their presence and their sharing on basic practices. The beautiful environment of Plum Village, hikes through the countryside fields, brotherhood and sisterhood and the loving, understanding atmosphere of the community are refreshing and healing for body and spirit.
Some Practical Information
- This Mindful Health and Wellness Retreat is open to all men, women and couples. However, as New Hamlet is a nunnery, only the “camping, campervan or commuter” option are available for single men.
- This retreat is open only to those aged 18 years and older. We are not able to offer a children’s or teens’ program during this retreat. Programs for children and teens are offered at Plum Village in July only, during our special annual Summer Opening Retreat. If you wish to take your children on a retreat in August, Plum Village monastics will offer children’s and teens’ programs in English, German and Dutch at the EIAB in Germany. You are welcome to join us there.
