  • this retreat takes place in Upper Hamlet. The other hamlets in Plum Village have their own distinct schedule for that week. We will come together as a community at certain times (e.g., the New Year’s Eve celebrations). We aim to live harmoniously as a community, and it is not possible to commute between hamlets for this retreat.
  • the retreat schedule for the week will be available on arrival in Plum Village. It is not published before the retreat.
