Sister Chan Khong’s Special Visit

August 19 @ 3:00 pm - August 21 @ 3:00 pm

We would like to inform you that the visit of Sister Chân Không coming to Magnolia Grove Monastery has unfortunately been CANCELLED. The weekend will still continue as usual and we’d love for you to still come here, but it will be without her beautiful presence.

The reason being, Sister Chân Không has recently experienced an injury which makes it difficult for her to travel.  She is doing much better now, but has shared with us that she can no longer commit to fulfill her promise to visit.  We know that this pains Sister Chân Không even more than her own physical ailment.  However, Sister ChânKhông is at peace when we are taking care of ourselves through our practice of mindful breathing and walking.


We ask that you keep Sister Chân Không in your thoughts and send her your love and peaceful energy, as this can be a source of healing for her.  Thank you for your understanding and support.

The following weekend, August 26-28, the monastery will host a special weekend for Order of Interbeing members, currently mentoring aspirants, and sangha facilitators. You are invited to come stay for these nine wonderful days with the Sangha.
