Lunar New Year Celebration (Tết)

February 1 @ 5:00 pm - February 10 @ 9:00 am

You are welcome to join the Magnolia Grove Monastery community for our celebrations of the Lunar New Year, or “Tết” – the most important festival in Vietnamese culture.
 
This is one of the more unusual and joyous weeks in the Magnolia Grove calendar, centered around informal teachings based on traditional Vietnamese poetic “oracle reading”.

 
Please note that our formal practices of sitting meditation, walking meditation and silent meals are suspended, and replaced with informal practice. Therefore this week is appropriate only for those already familiar with Plum Village practice.
