!!!! FYI:

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.

There's no way I can do the whole retreat (Sep 24-29), but THIS (just the 29th) is very do-able for me. @Vastminds , you may be very interested -- and others perhaps...?

  • I certainly am interested- thanks for posting! This would have to be a part of a planned vacation, since we are exactly 8 hours away. Maybe I could coax my husband into going if we spend one night in Memphis where he can take care of his sensual pleasure needs (ie: food, music, and alcohol) for a Night of Mindlessness. LOL. But he might have to sleep in the car while I'm at the Day of Mindfulness. :-/

    There's always Beale Street!

    I don't (usually) work on weekends anymore, but I put in a request at work today just in case to have that day off, though I won't be registering until Monday.

    I imagine there will be a good deal of people there, but it might be possible for any NB folks here to briefly meet face-to-face as well...

    Just bumpin' this! Our Sangha group here is finishing up plans
    to go! I admit...I'm getting a little more excited as the time nears.
    ....I'm spent enough time there, that now it's going to feel
    more of a whole thing...Some of us will be there the whole retreat...
    but some of us...me.....I can only attend the last day.
    Retreat in the South if anyone is
    looking for one....???? :p
