We invite you to visit Plum Village during our Spring Retreat, to experience a wonderful opportunity to practice renewal and transformation with our residential community of over 200 monks, nuns and lay practitioners.
You are welcome to join us for a deep experience of mindful living for a one-week or two-week stay, as Mother Earth stirs from slumber and new blossoms begin to appear. Spring is a time to come to relax and refresh yourself in the peaceful atmosphere and light energy of the community.
We offer all our guests an “orientation” into our basic mindfulness practices upon arrival, and from then on the week unfolds relaxingly and naturally, as everyone joins the stream of community life, living and practicing together.
In the Spring Retreat we have sessions of mindful community service in the grounds and gardens, and we also have more sitting and chanting sessions than in our “Special Retreats” such as the Summer Retreat or other themed retreats.
