We are happy to let you know that there will be a Day of Mindfulness at Magnolia Grove Monastery on Sunday, September 29th, 2013. Our teacher Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and about 80 monks and nuns from Plum Village, Deer Park & Blue Cliff Monasteries will be present. It will also be the last day of our 5-day retreat “Healing Yourself is Healing the World” (from September 24th to September 9th), so about 900 retreatants will also already be at the monastery. It will be a great opportunity for us to practice Mindfulness together. The powerful collective energy of the community will be healing and transformative for every one of us. Please do your best to attend this special day. Please bring your family and friends with you, too.
In order for the monastery to better welcome our friends coming for the day, we kindly ask you to make make a small donation of $50.00 or more (per adult), $30 or more (per child 6-18 year old), to help us with these preparations. There will be a special program for children over 6 year old. Dormitory and camping spaces are only available to friends who participate the whole retreat; therefore, we cannot accommodate friends who wish to spend Saturday night at the monastery.
