Volunteer for the Francophone Retreat

What are you going to do when you become a Buddha? You become awakened to help living beings.

Thich Nhat Hanh

We would like to invite experienced Francophone practitioners in the Plum Village tradition to support us as volunteers during the 2023 Francophone Retreat. Your help is essential in many areas, such as guiding mindful service, translation, transportation …

Volunteers will arrive on April 4 and depart on April 15. French will be the lead language during this retreat.

All volunteers will camp and contribute €125 for the stay.

Volunteers must provide a copy of Identification, proof of health insurance and visa if needed. We cannot consider your application if you have not attended a retreat at a Plum Village center before.

If you are interested to join us please apply below. Please be patient with us as it may take us a few weeks to get back to you.

Apply to be a volunteer in:

  • Upper Hamlet (with the monks) does not generally receive single female volunteers.
  • New Hamlet and Lower Hamlet (with the nuns) do not generally receive single male volunteers.
  • All three hamlets receive couples and non-binary folks as volunteers

A lotus for you, a buddha to be!
