CAMPING RETREAT AT DHARMA CLOUD MONASTERY 

 

Dear Friends, 

 

We are delighted to inform you about the Autumn Camping Retreat at Dharma Cloud Monastery 2019. 

This retreat will be a chance to get away from our daily busy life and mindfully come back to our body and mind through practising mindfulness meditation. The program includes Dharma talks and Q&As given by Most Venerable Thich Phuoc Tinh and Sr. Kinh Nghiem from Deer Park Monastery on some common topics such as dealing with stress and resolving conflicts in the family and at work. Participants will also be guided to do sitting, walking and bowing meditations and practise them every day.  

Most Venerable Thich Phuoc Tinh is one of the highly respected monks at Deer Park Monastery (USA). He has been practising as a Buddhist monk for over 50 years, giving Dharma Talks and holding many retreats in the US, Vietnam, Canada and Australia. 

 

The program also includes bush walking, picnic meals by the small lake and other various activities. We will demonstrate our respect to nature and practice the low carbon footprint lifestyle through all activities during the retreat.
