August youth retreat at Plum Village is now confirmed!
The annual youth retreat has just been given its final go-ahead by the elders at Plum Village, and will take place 21-28 August 2009.
We’ve chosen these vacation dates so that as many people from as many countries as possible can come. This year the retreat will take place between Lower Hamlet and Upper Hamlet, so that we can accomodate over 100 young people (as well as the 50 -70 young monastics who will participate in this retreat!) It will be the biggest yet.
It’s the one time in the Plum Village year that we create a program specifically for young people – full of energy and relaxation, spontaneity and authenticity. We’ve now started having young people’s retreats all over Europe and the US, but this is the one chance for us to come together from all over the world to a beautiful corner of France.
This retreat is created for young people, by young people. We’ll come together to nourish our joy, chill out in nature, relax and just be ourselves. We’ll have sitting meditation and walking meditation, bonfires, and hikes and frisbee... creative workshops and a lot of music. Bring your inspiration!
