The Miracle of Mindfulness

A Residential Mindfulness Retreat with Br. Chan Huy

Sponsored by Plum Blossom Sangha

February 23-25, 2007
McKinney Roughs Nature Park
Bastrop, Texas

This retreat will be a wonderful opportunity for us to slow down, relax, rejuvenate and connect with our deepest source of inspiration and insight. We will practice mindful breathing, walking and eating while observing noble silence - in a spirit of togetherness to grow our peace, calm and joy for our loved ones, our world and ourselves. We will practice deep looking into the situation of our society today and learn to respond with understanding and compassion. The retreat will be conducted in the tranquil setting of the McKinney Roughs Nature Park, a short drive east of Austin, Texas.

Br. Chan Huy, True Radiance comes from a family with four generations of Thich Nhat Hanh’s students, from his grandmother to his two children. Chan Huy teaches and leads mindfulness retreats throughout North America. He was ordained by Thich Nhat Hanh.
