You are welcome to send us a request if you need financial support.
All periods for which we are open are indicated on this site. So remember to check that we are open before coming.
We welcome retreatants for the week as well as for the weekend (Friday to Sunday or Monday). It may be possible to stay several weeks in a row if our program allows.
Be aware that all our rooms are similar, with 3/4 beds and shared bathroom and toilets with the residents of the floor. We do not have a single room or for two, which means that we usually ask couples to sleep in separate rooms.
You will find on this page all the information to come to the Healing Spring Monastery, including public transport from Paris and its stations, and carpooling.
Our Awareness Days are usually held every Sunday from 10:00 to 16:30. They are announced on the page of Days of Mindfulness of this site as well as on our facebook page.
You are invited to bring a vegan dish to share with everyone, to sign up quickly for the day (coming soon) and to think of offering your additional places in carpooling if you come by car.
