This summer, from 5th to 12th August, Plum Village will be hosting another wonderful International Wake Up Retreat.

These retreats are a time for us to be together, young people from all over the world (16-35 year olds), to deepen our mindfulness practice, and enjoy time being together.

As well as the usual program of sitting meditation, dharma talks and mindful eating and so on, we’ll have plenty of time to relax and restore ourselves by being close to nature – on walking meditations, going on hikes, working on the Happy Farm, and spending time together around bonfires. There will be music and laughter, as well as time to listen deeply and share from our hearts.

We will be asking ourselves:
