WHY PLUM VILLAGE INDIA RETREATS ARE SO IMPORTANT?
In retreats you learn to take a whole new look into your life. You sit quiet under a cool tree and feel charged again. These are simple meditations which are exercises in ‘mindfulness’. Learn to do it and do it. See for yourself. No need to rely on others’ reviews. But it takes grit, discipline and hard work. It takes determination.
WILL THIS WORK AS WE ARE NOT ALIKE!
