UK and Ireland Tour 2023

Nourishing Roots and Blossoming Branches Tour

Join a group of eight Plum Village brothers and sisters as we crisscross the British Isles and Ireland to lead retreats, Days of Mindfulness, mindful walks, sangha building events … coming together to practice “live”, to sustain Plum Village (the “roots”) and to raise funds for the UK Being Peace Practice Centre (the “blossoming branch”).
