Miracle of Mindfulness: Breathe, it’ll be okay
October 27 – November 1, 2015
A Sangha of 75 monastics from Plum Village, Blue Cliff, Magnolia Grove and Deer Park Monasteries will come together to host this retreat and other events during this US Tour without the physical presence of our beloved Teacher, Thay. Please join us in the mountains of Deer Park Monastery to manifest the miracles of mindfulness together as a spiritual family, a Sangha. We come back to the present moment through our awareness of our breath and our steps. As we recognize the impermanent nature of our breath, our feelings and our thinking, the insight: Breathe, it’ll be okay ripens naturally. Coming together to cultivate the art of mindful living in all of our daily activities help the insight of interbeing to sprout. We have prepared additional information on this Retreat Information Sheet.
If you are young or old, new to mindfulness practice or experienced, We welcome you all to join this retreat. Families with children and teens are warmly welcome to this retreat.
