Watering Seeds of Happiness
A Commuter Retreat in the Tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh
May 17 & 18, 2019 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Happiness is available if only we know how to slow down and touch the positive, healing elements in ourselves and in the world around us.
Please join us as we cultivate these qualities through meditation, relaxation, and deep reflection with Dharma Teacher Chu Chan Huy.
Beginners and seasoned practitioners alike can benefit from the peace, calm and insights generated by
sitting with Laughing Rivers Sangha. The retreat can be enjoyed as a whole or as individual Days of Mindfulness. You can pack your lunch or purchase a vegetarian lunch when you register.
Cost: $50 per day; $80 for both days. Limited scholarships are available.
Daily Themes: Day 1: Watering Our Positive Seeds / Day 2: Cultivating Healthy Gardens
