  1. Hello and thank you 🙏🏼…I very much look forward to this opportunity to visit Deer Park Monastery. I was registered before Covid and NOW, yes. Again, my heart is with great anticipation. I am grateful for the teaching of Thay and practice eating gathas everyday around my eating, and when I walk & breathe.

    May all beings be free and at peace 💚

  2. I would like to register for two people also and while it shows 12 spots open when you click on it shows as full? Can I be put on a wait list also in case some people cancel?
    Thank you.

    • At this time, this day of mindfulness is full and shows that here on our end. We’re sorry it’s showing differently for you. Perhaps something in the memory of the browser. We will definitely release more spots on Friday and Saturday preceding the date, so please check back then.

  3. Hello,

    I rsvp’d to go to this day of mindfulness with one guest and now I cannot go anymore. How should I update the rsvp so other can go in our place?

    Thank you for your help.

    With Care,
    Anna
