Temple Stay

In this bustling city, we long to find a place to slow down and relieve stress. Temple Stay Program in Plum Village HK is designed as such a haven. It is not only an opportunity for you to escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy a simple, peaceful life, but also a chance to learn how to cultivate mindfulness, making your life more full of freedom, peace, and joy.

In Plum Village HK, you can learn how to incorporate mindfulness into everyday activities, living more deeply in every moment of life. Whether it is mindful eating, walking, working, or sitting, or even just having tea together, every simple activity can make you feel the beauty of life. Collective practices, such as walking meditation and sitting meditation, allow you to receive support from the collective cultivation energy and learn to live in harmony with others.

The Temple Stay Program is located at Lotus Pond Temple on Lantau Island, where the environment is quiet and serene, nearby hiking trail, and you can hear birds singing in the morning. Here, not only can you practice with the monks but also immerse yourself in the nature, calm your body and mind, and learn more about Buddhism.
