A retreat is an opportunity to enjoy simple and peaceful living, and to learn how to cultivate the energy of mindfulness.  Attending a retreat is a vital way to nourish our practice, deepen our awareness, and cultivate our compassion and kindness toward ourselves and others.

Scholarships are available for all SnowFlower, regional retreats in the Plum Village Tradition, and visits/retreats to national Plum Village Monasteries.
