GOOD NEWS, GOOD NEWS! Dates are now confirmed for the Summer International Youth Retreat at Plum Village, France:
Plum Village International Wake Up! Youth Retreat
22-27 August 2010
Continuing the Wake Up tradition of coming together joyfully, creatively and living deeply in such a way that we're really true to ourselves, we've titled the retreat "Truly Alive". Thay agreed to offer both a Dharma Talk and a Q & A especially for us young people! And we'll have maximum support and participation from the monastic Sangha who only get back from the England Retreat on the 21st August.
Together, we will learn and practice mindfulness - the art of living fully the present moment, so that we can recognize and appreciate the conditions of happiness that are already available, and be able to take good care of our difficulties. We will learn to relax, to listen to ourselves and to take the good decisions in our lives. We will practice mindfulness in sitting, walking, while lying down, eating, working, running, sleeping, on our hands, on our head…….We will discuss our life’s aspirations and challenges in sharing groups, and have workshops to discover and express our creativity.
