Lazy Days and Summer Retreat
Dear Friends,
We wish you a happy new moon in June, as the monks and nuns take two weeks of rest camping in nature after more than a year of closure at Deer Park. We call this Lazy Days, and Thay taught us to enjoy practicing our favorite practice during these largely unscheduled times. The brothers have been camping along a river in Arizona and walking mindfully in the wild nature of red rock country.
We recently finished a Wake Up Earth retreat for young people online, where Sister The Nghiem invited us to “give space to allow the voices of those who have not been heard to speak up so that we can collectively heal our roots” as individuals and as a society.
Deer Park has decided with joy to open for an in-person Summer Retreat. This retreat is available for anyone 12 and over who has received the full vaccination.
The weekly class on the 40 Tenets of Plum Village will resume next Wednesday, June 16th at 7:30 pm PST. Here are the nine classes that have been offered so far.
Enjoy your step, and enjoy your breath.
