1. First Week of the Hiking – May 12th – 18th, ALL BOOKED

For the first time the monks of Plum Village are organizing a pilgrimage on the path of St. Francis, with the help of the Franciscan monastic community and the lay friends.

We will have the opportunity to experience returning to a state of simplicity, where for pilgrimages like these only two sandals were enough to start walking.

 

2. Public Walk in the City of Arezzo – Sunday, May 19th 

Opening up to others, opening up to joy

Nourishing mindfulness through steps, movements, and others practices

We are very happy to invite you on May 19th to our event in our city! It has always been in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh to offer, during his stays in Italy, a day of mindfulness. Last time it happened in Rome on August 30th 2012, preceding the last retreat that Thich Nhat Hanh held in Italy. The monastic community of Plum Village intends to continue the tradition by offering a day of mindfulness that will start in the morning with a meeting with the monks. Followed by walking meditation in the historic city center and will end in the beautiful park adjacent to the Duomo, on the top of the city. Here, for those who would like, it will be possible to sit on Mother Earth and have lunch together with the food brought from home.

Next May 2019 for the first time the monks of Plum Village are organizing, with the help of the Franciscan monastic community and lay friends, a pilgrimage on the path of St. Francis.

We will have the opportunity to experience returning to a state of simplicity, where for pilgrimages like these only two sandals were enough to start walking.

 

4. Public Event in Assisi – Sunday, May 26th

Dear friends, it is with great joy that we inform you that at the end of the pilgrimage, there will be a public event open to all in Assisi. It seems a natural way to end this long journey of two weeks by offering our conscious energy and collective peace, to the city that will host us for the last stage of the pilgrimage. The walk will be enriched by the presence of Franciscan friars, who will join us to support this offering to the home town of St. Francis.
