Allow yourself to connect with the spirit and serenity of the majestic Pyrenees mountains during the Mountain Mindfulness retreats offered by Plum Village. Located in Andorra, the retreat will foster a space for you to incorporate the tenets of Buddhism and mindfulness into skiing, ski touring, or the more tranquil snowshoeing. Enjoy this opportunity to build sangha with the gentle guidance from the Plum Village monastics who will lead everyone in morning and evening meditations, dharma talks, and mindfulness contemplations.
Accommodations include a clean and modern hostel that evokes a sense of community. Remember your bathing suit! The hostel’s stunning views and hot tub build a nurturing ambiance.
We are approaching every aspect of the retreat with mindfulness for Mother Earth. All meals, which are included in the cost, will be vegetarian or vegan. Please make sure to check any dietary restrictions upon registration. The food provisions are pre-planned by the restaurants to accommodate our group. We’d like to ensure that everyone’s dietary requirements are met. Participants are strongly encouraged to carpool (See our Ridesharing Forum) or take the train and bus. Flying is not encouraged. However, if you must fly, please take this opportunity to extend your stay by exploring nearby areas of France and Spain (and maybe even Plum Village!). No alcohol consumption is allowed during the retreat.For more information, make sure to check out our Practical Information Page and our FAQ Forum.
