We are sharing happy news!

This Winter, the Plum Village community is delighted to welcome educators from around the world for a one-week retreat. The theme will be Taking Care of the Future in the Present Moment.

From Friday 28 December 2018 to Friday 4 January 2019, we will practice the art of mindful living, learn ways of integrating mindfulness in our educational settings, and share our experiences from the heart.

What a wonderful way to welcome in a New Year, and to renew our common aspiration of being happy teachers!

We hope you can join us!
