We are happy and excited to invite you to a day of mindfulness:
A delegation of four monks and nuns from the plum village community – the practice center of Zen Master Thich Nhat Han – will lead this unique day of practice, in the heart of one of the most beautiful forests in mount Carmel.
During the day we will practice walking meditation in a pleasant path in the forest, listen to the teachings offered by the Dharma teachers, the unique practice of Plum Village, sit quietly for guided meditation, and even our meal will be a meditation practice in itself.
This practice day is especially dedicated to young practitioners, in the Wake Up tradition of Plum Village (https://wkup.org/) and in the afternoon there will be a separate activity for young people (18-35)

Vegetarian / vegan dish for a shared meal
