Registration form

Conditions for true happiness are always around us, but often we are wrapped in our anger, sorrow, or despair and unable to touch them. During this retreat, we learn to enjoy the happiness in this moment. We will sit in meditation together, walk mindfully outdoors, enjoy tea, and discuss the art of mindful living in daily life. We will reduce our talking by 90 percent and enjoy silent meals to help us be aware of the elements of true happiness present in us, in our loved ones, and in our surroundings. Those who have studied and practiced the Five Mindfulness Trainings will have an opportunity to receive them from Chan Huy in a Mindfulness Trainings Transmission Ceremony on Sunday.
