Living in a fast-paced society like ours, we are often carried away by the demands of a hectic life at school, at work, and even at home.

This retreat conducted by Plum Village Delegation offers an opportunity for us to slow down. Together, we will practise bringing mindfulness into daily life. We learn to enjoy sitting, walking, and eating in ways that help us recognise the beautiful gifts that life offers us. We receive nourishment by touching the beauty of nature, the beautiful presence of people around us, and the beauty in ourselves.

Note: This is a compulsory stay-in retreat.

Jointly organised with: Joyful Garden Community of Mindful Living
