Retreat 2008

In the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh
All are welcome!

Peace is Every Step

A Residential Mindfulness Retreat with Br. Chan Huy

Sponsored by Plum Blossom Sangha

March 7-9, 2008
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.

The retreat will start on Friday, March 7 with check-in from 3 pm-7pm, dinner from 5:30-6:30 and orientation at 6:45. The retreat will end on Sunday, March 9 at 4pm.

Br. Chan Huy (True Radiance) is ordained as a Dharma teacher in the Order of Interbeing by Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh. He lives in Ottawa, Canada, and teaches and gives retreats throughout North America.
