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 at school. At times, adults and children will practice together and at other times, they will 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 entire retreat with their children. There is no partial attendance to this residential retreat.
Programs for children, 6 years of age and older, and a teen program will run during parts of the day. Monastic and lay staff will help lead the programs and we will ask for support from parents to assist the groups during the retreat.
If your family determines that they are committed to attending the 5 days of this retreat, we encourage early registration. Space is limited.
