Unfortunately we do not have more space for this retreat. Please consider our General Retreat in English: I have Enough in September.

With the practice of mindfulness as the base, we shall learn to practice deep listening and loving speech to nourish true harmony within our families. During this retreat, we shall learn to practice together as an extended family and to support each other at home, in the work place, and in school. At times, the parents and children will be together and at other times, they practice separately. It is a precious chance for the whole family to be in a practice setting and learn new ways of being with one another. We encourage both parents to join the whole duration of the retreat with their children. No partial attendance.

There will be a program for children (6-12 yrs old) and teens (13-18 yrs) during part of the day. Monastic and lay staff will help lead the program and we will ask support from parents to assist the groups during the retreat.
