Plum Village - all hamlets
During our big Summer Retreat, from 3-31 July, we have up to 800 guests staying at Plum Village, and so we do not offer our usual Days of Mindfulness.
You are welcome, however, to attend the Dharma talks which are given four times a week in the mornings.
The Dharma Talks start at 9.30am, and will be offered in English or French. As we are so numerous, please be sure to arrive by 9am, so you are not in a rush and can easily find a seat and settle in to the hall. Please help support the collective energy of the retreat, by entering the monastery quietly. Simultaneous translation into English or French will be provided via loudspeakers outdoors. Following the Dharma Talk there will be a short break, and then walking meditation outside with the whole community.
We invite all our day visitors to leave before lunch, or to bring your own picnic lunch, as we are not able to cater for extra guests during such a big retreat. The afternoon program is reserved for those taking part in the retreat. (If you wish to take part more fully in the retreat (minimum commitment of 1 week), you are welcome to register as a “commuter”.)
Regular Days of Mindfulness will recommence in the autumn. The first Day of Mindfulness will be on Sunday 20th September.
