Upper Hamlet - Plum Village

Wake Up Earth 2016

This summer, from 5th to 12th August, Plum Village will be hosting another wonderful International Wake Up Retreat.

These retreats are a time for us to be together, young people from all over the world (16-35 year olds), to deepen our mindfulness practice, and enjoy time being together.

As well as the usual program of sitting meditation, dharma talks and mindful eating and so on, we’ll have plenty of time to relax and restore ourselves by being close to nature – on walking meditations, going on hikes, working on the Happy Farm, and spending time together around bonfires. There will be music and laughter, as well as time to listen deeply and share from our hearts.

We will be asking ourselves:

In the current climate crisis and context of wars, how can we balance our deep wish to engage in actions to help the world, with our own personal spiritual journey? How can we find meaning and purpose in our life? How can we find an alternative, healthier, sane, and compassionate lifestyle?

During the Wake Up retreat men and women sleep on different locations. Each day the women will walk 15min from Middle Hamlet and the Crystal House for the activities in Upper Hamlet.
The following rooms are available for women:
* Bed in Women’s Dormitory
* Bed in Womens Three/Four Bed Room
* Camping for Women (bring your own equipment)
The men will stay in Upper Hamlet and can select the rooms there.
During this retreat couples can not stay together
