Duration of Stay

Generally, all our guests can stay for at least one week and a maximum of two weeks. This is applicable to all of our retreats in general.

It is also possible to come for a day (ie not to stay overnight in Plum Village) to attend one of our Day of Mindfulness (DoM) every Thursday and Sunday. Please read Day of Mindfulness for more details.

If you wish to stay longer than two weeks, then you are invited to write an aspiration letter describing with your motivation as well as the number of weeks you wish to extend your stay for. The community will take as a basis your practice of the first two weeks and your aspiration letter to reach a decision. Aspiration letter is not required for Summer Opening Retreat.
