Together We Breathe, Together We Heal
“Because you are alive, everything is possible.”
- Thich Nhat Hanh
We warmly welcome you to participate in this People of Color Retreat.
The Retreat will be offered and led by monastics, lay Dharma Teachers and Order of Interbeing members from the Plum Village Tradition.
This five-day retreat honors the potency of space for people of color to heal, nourish and celebrate ourselves, our communities and our ancestors through learning and cultivating mindfulness practices together. In support of multiracial families to practice together, limited attendance may be available to Caucasian partners/family members of People of Color, depending on space vacancy.
Through the practice of mindful living offered during this retreat we will reconnect with the sources of joy, peace and freedom for ourselves, our communities, and our ancestors. We will learn concrete ways to embrace, transform, and heal our own suffering, ancestral suffering, and institutional oppression. Join us as we continue our path of healing to build a beloved community together.
