Dear beloved friends all over the world,
We are back!
To you we send our warm greetings to keep you informed that over here, the monastic Sangha in Thai Plum Village is very healthy and diligent in the practice. While the pandemic of Covid-19 is about to cease, the past challenging year has offered us more strength, and we are more aware than ever of the value of practicing together.
Although we are separated by social distancing, the monastic sangha of Thai Plum Village has continued to receive a lot of extraordinary support and love from friends all over the world. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to you for always being with us on this spiritual journey. Moreover, to offer a gift from our heart, we would like to open an online five-day retreat named “Healing Ourselves – Healing the World”.
This retreat will be in English with the support of multilingual translations, and will run from May 1 to May 5, 2021. The daily practice schedule includes sitting meditation, walking meditation, total relaxation, Dharma sharing, and more. Additionally, our senior monastic Dharma teachers will give Dharma talks as well as presentations on the practices of the Five Mindfulness Trainings and Beginning Anew.
The whole Sangha will be practicing at the same time with you, and all activities will be live-streamed to participants. We would like to offer you the collective energy of the Sangha as if you were present in Thai Plum Village.
Online registration will be opened on April 2, at 3 pm Thailand’s time, GMT +7. Guidance to register and the link for registration will be uploaded on our Facebook page (Tu viện Vườn Ươm – Làng Mai Thái Lan, Thai Plum Village) and website (www.thaiplumvillage.org and www.langmaithailan.org ); please stay connected.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Breathe and smile,
Thai Plum Village online retreat organizing team
