Plum Village retreat CAVAN – “living deeply, living truly”

“Living deeply, living truly” led by Plum Village’s Sr Insight

For the first time ever in Cavan, buddhist nun Sister Insight will lead a weekend mindfulness retreat.

Sister Insight will be accompanied by THREE other Plum Village Monastics. Plum Village is the mindfulness practice centre/Buddhist monastery founded by Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh (www.plumvillage.org) over 30 years ago in France.

Sister Insight will lead the retreat. She is a Senior Dharma Teacher within the Plum Village Mindfulness tradition. She ordained as nun 23 years ago and lives her daily life practising mindfulness and leading mindfulness retreats around the world. The weekend will focus on how we can establish live our daily lives more deeply in order to nourish ourselves and others. This will be a full immersion weekend with a wonderful opportunity to indulge ourselves in various mindfulness practices for creating ease in both body and mind, expertly led by the Sisters.

All meals and refreshments from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon are included in the cost of the retreat. In line with the tradition of Plum Village all meals will be vegan. If this will be a first for you don’t worry the feedback about the food was tremendous! And its so good for you!

Tanagh is an outdoor activity centre but we will turn it into a monastery for the weekend 🙂 http://www.tanaghoutdooreducation.com

Retreatants are also asked to comply with the Plum Village Five Mindfulness Trainings while on the retreat.


Dana is a voluntary contribution offered directly to the monastics. The price of a ticket for the retreat is set to cover your costs such as accommodation, food, the organisers cost of bringing the four Sisters from France and all their travel expenses, food etc while visiting.

It is part of tradition that the Dharma or teachings be given free of charge. It is then left to the individual to donate as they see fit. This is done annonymously. This also nurtures a spirit of generosity and open heartedness. Dana is normally left in a bowl, for that purpose, towards the end of the retreat.
