WE INTER-ARE | Tôi và Em Dung Thông

May 11, 2023 May 14, 2023 PDT

A Retreat with Sister Chan Khong

It has been almost 10 years since the last US teaching tour in 2013, when Sister Chan Khong went with Thay and the Plum Village delegation. This year, during her visit to Deer Park Monastery, Sister Chan Khong would like to offer her heart and her practice as much as she can. We welcome sangha friends and friends of Sister Chan Khong to come and join us.

We have a chance to strengthen our connection with the community through sharing our stories and memories, along with sitting, walking, and eating meditation with each other. There will also be a transmission ceremony of the 14 Mindfulness Trainings during the retreat. Let us get together with our dear Sister Chan Khong- the Singing Nun in Action- to feel again the message Thay wrote to her that embraces her spirit:

Her singing goes straight into our hearts, Into our blood stream,
To become a true love song
Bringing to all living beings peace and joy Forgiveness
And inclusiveness.

Thich nhat hanh

Thank you so much for your continued love and support. We look forward to practicing with you soon.

  1. Hi Brother Joy, I wonder if you can help check that the registration is working. When clicking the “Make Reservation” button, I see an error message. Thank you 🙏

    • Yes, it is still open but we have a subscription expire over the weekend preventing new registrations. Please try again.

  2. Hi Brother Joy,

    I made a reservation, but since the system didn’t direct me to PayPal, would you please be able to help in confirming the status of my reservation?

    Reservation IDs: R13514681; R13514690

    Thank you very much for your assistance.

    • Hello Đăng, if you didn’t get a confirmation email then please contact our registration office staff at office@deerparkmonastery.org

      Also, can you share if you reach the last screen where you have to click on the PayPal icon to pay?

      • Brother, I just gave the registration office staff a call and she was able to help me get sorted–thank you.

        And yes I did; I think my problem was encountered because I opted for no contributions and so the PayPal redirect didn’t pop up.

  3. Greetings Brother Joy,
    I have a confirmation RSVP for May 14. I understand there are many people expected on this day and wanted to know if there might be a spot available for overnight camping a day ahead (arrival on 13th)? I am not participating in the retreat but am driving in from more than an hour away. If so, how might I arrange for this? Thank you in advance.

  4. Hi Brother Joy ,
    I registered for the retreat but cannot arrive till Friday evening. Would this be okay?
    Kind Regards,
