Peace in Oneself, Peace in the World

 A Residential Mindfulness Retreat in the Tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh

 Led by Dharma Teacher Chan Huy 

Memorial Day Weekend, May 28-30

St. Francis Springs Prayer Center, Stoneville, NC

“Practicing peace is possible with every step, with every breath. It is possible for us to practice together and bring hope and compassion into our daily lives and into the lives of our families, our community, our nation and the world.”

- Thich Nhat Hanh

In this retreat we will slow down, rest, and come back to our true selves to experience stability, freedom and peace, and awaken to the wonderful, refreshing and healing elements that are available in and around us in each moment of our lives.

The retreat begins on Saturday afternoon, May 28, and concludes on Monday afternoon, May 30 (Memorial Day) and will include sitting and walking meditation, Dharma talks, question-and-answer sessions, and opportunities for private interviews with teachers. Beginners and experienced meditators alike are welcome.

In order to maintain a focused retreat environment for all, please plan to arrive Saturday afternoon and stay for the entire retreat.

Location:  St. Francis Springs Prayer Center in Stoneville, NC (30 miles north of Greensboro)

Registration Fee: $240/person, which covers lodging, food and organizing expenses. The teachings are freely given, and there will be an opportunity to practice “dana” (generosity) by making a donation to support Chan Huy’s teaching and travel expenses.
