THIS EVENT HAS BEEN PAUSED DUE TO THE Covid-19 VIRUS. IT WILL BE HOPEFULLY RESCHEDULED LATER THIS YEAR OR NEXT YEAR.
Thank you so much for your interest in our retreat. We are so sorry that we will not be able to hold this retreat because of the current conditions. We hope to hold this retreat later in the year or next year.
This Retreat will offer us an opportunity to explore the beauty and challenges of Sangha building.
Thich Nhat Hanh’s life was dedicated to building community, recognizing the essential healing, joy and strength we gain by creating a practice community. A place of refuge and well being for our self, new practitioners and future generations.
There are many tools and insights we can cultivate in order to support a strong and happy community of practice.
We will explore these elements of community building as well as go step by step through developing skills for facilitating the practice. With the guidance of Dharma teachers and experienced sangha builders, there will be detailed descriptions of the meaning and practical steps for facilitating different practices, as well as chances to practice, ask questions and learn together.

Departure is on Sunday after lunch on May 31st, at 2pm.
