Our self-talk is often coined by harsh words, judgment, and criticism towards all the alleged mistakes and weaknesses in us. We deny ourselves understanding, kindness, encouragement and love, and do not accept the complexity of life. The relationship to ourselves also sets the tone of our relationship to others. During this retreat, we are going to explore how it feels to treat ourselves and others with loving kindness, to heal wounds and transform unwholesome habit energies in gentle ways, and to be able to treat us and others with more kindness and peace.
The retreat will be led by a team of monastics from Plum Village, France. During the retreat, we’ll have the chance to explore in community such questions as: How can we find meaning and purpose in our lives? How can we be peaceful, free and happy in ourselves while also acting to bring healing to the world, reduce injustice, and protect the planet? How can we live in such a way that brings more joy, compassion and love to ourselves and others?

A special retreat for young adults – ages 18-35ish Mother Earth has sent out a call for us to come together, and learn to reshape our lives in such a way that all beings nourished and sustained – and we face many challenges on this path. Yet we can draw strength and insight from ancient practices of presence, wisdom and kindness. We can look to one another for inspiration and support. We can deeply touch our great Mother Earth and continue in her tradition of perseverance, creativity, healing and transformation. This retreat is an opportunity to develop the practice of mindful living, to bring joy, solidity and freedom into the world. We grow the strength and capacity to create loving relationships, to build a community of supportive friends, to care for the Earth and contribute to positive change in the world. We will be sharing daily meditation, yoga, mindful meals, listening to teachings, hikes in the forest, and discussions, as well as have time to enjoy swimming, music-filled bonfires, starry nights, and canoeing – surrounded by 240 beautiful acres of MorningSun Community.

Suite au succès des années précédentes, c’est avec grand plaisir que nous vous invitons à nous rejoindre dans ce petit hameau sympathique des Cévennes du 24 juin au 1er juillet 2017 pour une nouvelle aventure ensemble. Pour cette retraite, nous nous inspirerons de l'enseignement de pleine conscience du moine Bouddhiste Zen Vietnamien, Thich Nhat Hanh, tel qu'il l'enseigne au Village des Pruniers et nous co-animerons la retraite avec des moines et moniales venus exprès pour l'occasion.
