Dear Sangha and friends,
It's time to register for the 2016 Spring Opening Retreat.
The Retreat runs from Friday 16th - Wednesday 21st September at the beautiful Cave Hill Creek in Victoria. Again, the Retreat will be lead by our monastics from Hong Kong, Thailand, and Nhap Luu Meditation Centre Australia.
Information about registration, costs, accommodation types, and the retreat program are available online at www.nhapluu.org
Following Plum Village Tradition, the Retreat is family-friendly with children welcome. We realise that the Retreat is being held during the last week of term for NSW schools. This was unavoidable because the NSW school holidays don’t align with the Victorian ones this year, nor with the time-slot available to us at our venue. However, we hope that many families will be able to attend. As always there is a specific children's program.
Registrations close on Friday 2nd September and early registrations are appreciated by our organising volunteers.
While all registrations must be made on line, please contact us if you have questions, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Order of Interbeing (OI) Retreat
This Retreat will be held at Nhap Luu Monastery and begins on Wednesday 21st and finishes on Friday 23rd September. It is open to all OI members, aspirants and those who live within the ideals of the Order of Interbeing and engaged Buddhism.
Registration is also online at www.nhapluu.org and information about cost and program is there too. When booking, please let us know if you need a bed in a room or a tent to camp.
We look forward to meeting you at the Retreat.
