The retreat is open to all, including beginners, those who have previously attended retreats, and families with children. The first part of the talks are normally dedicated to children. The nuns, monks and staff members will lead a mindfulness practice program for teens (ages 13-17). Some parents will be invited to help other monks, nuns and laystaff with a similar program focused on children (6 to 12 years old). Children under 6 are welcome to join the retreat under the care of their parent.
We welcome the participation of people from all backgrounds, regardless of ethnic origin, race, cultural background, socio-economic class, age, gender, sexual orientation, or physical ability.
We are committed to fostering a practice environment where all may touch the Dharma and find healing and nourishment.
