Summer Opening 2023

If a child smiles, if an adult smiles, that is very important.

Thich Nhat Hanh

From July 9th – 29th 2023, Plum Village will be a kingdom of smiles for families with children and teens.

To create space for more families, all retreatants (including children and teens) can only register for one week.
Please plan your retreat carefully to arrive and depart on the designated dates, especially if you are coming with children or teens so they can start the retreat together with their new friends.

Volunteering for the Retreat

The Summer Opening is not possible without the support of our volunteers. In order to truly offer stability and peace to the retreat, we prioritize volunteers who can make a one month commitment (arrive on July 2 and depart on August 1). More information will be available.
