In the footsteps of the Buddha - Retreat in India

08.04.2024 - 20.04.2024

We welcome you to this sacred pilgrimage through India (2024 April 08 – 20), an opportunity to “truly feel what the Buddha felt, see what he saw, and experience what he experienced” as a living human being.

In the presence of six Plum Village monastics, we will embark on this inner and outer journey, beginning each day with meditation, engage in mindful walking, and immerse in the life and teachings of the Buddha.
