Order of Interbeing Retreat & Vesak Celebration (Buddha’s Birthday)
May 4 @ 5:00 pm - May 7 @ 2:00 pm
Since Thich Nhat Hanh founded the Order of Interbeing in the 1960s, its fourfold Sangha has blossomed into a worldwide garden of practitioners, responding to divisiveness, hatred, and suffering with compassion, stability, and freedom. In this retreat, we will nourish our mindfulness, so we may continue to follow Thay’s teaching and the example of his life by engaging compassionately with the world to help transform suffering. We will enjoy formal meditation periods as well as mindfulness in all activities — walking, working, singing, and sharing with each other. With each step, we know our teacher continues through us, and gratitude and joy fill our hearts.
