This retreat will be held in Vietnamese and will be led by Monks and Nuns of Deer Park Monastery trained by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

The retreat is open to all Vietnamese speakers, including beginners, those who have previously attended retreats, and families with children. The first part of the talks are normally dedicated to children. The nuns, monks and staff members will lead a mindfulness practice program for teens (ages 13-17). Some parents will be invited to help other monks, nuns and laystaff with a similar program focused on children (6 to 12 years old). Children under 6 are welcome to join the retreat under the care of their parent.

We welcome the participation of Vietnamese speaking people from all backgrounds, regardless socio-economic class, age, gender, sexual orientation, or physical ability.

We are committed to fostering a practice environment where all may touch the Dharma and find healing and nourishment.
