Retreat to Ring in the New Year at Deer Park
December 29, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – January 2, 2022 @ 3:00 pm PST
Holiday Retreat 2021
Ring in the New Year with spiritual family.
When we come back to ourselves, to what is going on in the here and now, we let go of the stories we tell ourselves. Practicing this, we nourish our happiness, our hearts open, and we can come to better love and understand ourselves and our loved ones. This is a real gift to offer.
During this retreat, we will practice breathing, smiling, walking, eating, playing, working, sharing, and being together in mindfulness. We will bring our mind and body together, recognizing, touching, and enjoying the fruits of the present moment.
People of all experiences and backgrounds are welcome. Everyone attending must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Proof of vaccination will be required. Until vaccination regulations change, the retreat is limited to those 12-years old and up.

Update as of December 2nd: Everyone who initially registered for the retreat lottery have been confirmed or moved to the waiting list. As spaces open, due to cancellations, we will confirm people from the waiting list.
Update as of November 15th: The total number of retreatants this year will be 250 people. This will include the 75 people already in residence at the monastery. We are thrilled the covid vaccine for children is now available and we are assessing whether we will hold a children’s program; it will depend on how many children end up coming. If you do have a child, please make sure their second vaccination shot occurs by December 14th to allow for two weeks to pass before arriving.
Update as of November 10th: Our registration office is in the process of notifying people who are confirmed for the retreat. Many have already been notified. At this time we are waiting on confirmation from the monastic sangha on the total number of attendees. Once that is known, we will be confirming more people from the initial lottery. If you did not enter our initial lottery, you can enter your name onto the waiting list below. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
