- Hello Dear Sangha,
Until everyone is on the Mnt. Stream Yahoo Group list, some of you
may recieve duplicate messages. Sorry.. :-(
Please gently urge fellow Sangha brothers & sisters to sign up.
Here is some information on the upcoming weekend retreat:
Weekend Retreat -- May 14-15, 2005
Two of Thay's nuns who accompanied him on his recent historic return
to Vietnam--Sister Chau Nghiem and Sister Susan--will lead a weekend
mini-retreat, from 9:00am - 5:00pm each day. Saturday we will
practice at the Bridge School (home of Seeds of Awakening Sangha),
and Sunday at the home of Mountain Stream Sangha (directions below).
Practices will include sitting and walking meditation, mindful
eating, and perhaps a dharma talk by Sister Susan. Please bring your
own lunch each day; tea will be available. Also bring a cushion for
yourself (chairs are available) and be prepared to walk outdoors.
Cost is $20 for both days, and in addition, we are requesting a $5
donation ("dana") to help defray the cost of the sisters' travel to
Colorado. If you would like to attend, PLEASE REGISTER by sending
email to contact@... or leaving a message on our voicemail: 303
