The Transformation of Suffering
Fri, May 5, 2017, 5:00 PM – Sun, May 7, 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
You are invited to join us for the The Transformation of Suffering retreat at Countryside Camp in Cambridge, Ontario on May 5 – 7, 2017. The retreat will be lead by monastics from Blue Cliff Monastery in the Plum Village tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.
During this retreat we will enjoy being alive in the present moment through mindful practices of breathing, sitting, walking and eating. We will come together as a community in peaceful solidarity with our monastic brothers and sisters guiding us in mindful living.
Accommodations will be simple bunk style dormitories with shared washrooms. Healthy vegetarian meals will be provided. For more information about Countryside Camp, please visit the website: http://www.countrysidecamp.com/.
We look forward to your presence at Countryside Camp.
A lotus for you,

*Dana (the Pali word for generosity) has played an essential role in the 2,600 yearold Buddhist tradition. The retreat fee covers only the basic cost of accommodation, food, and part of the teachers’ transportation. Our monastic teachers freely offer the teachings, and are supported in turn by donations from participants who value what the teachings have brought to their lives. A donation box will be available at the retreat to collect donations in cash or cheque.
*For those who need financial support to attend this retreat, please email the organizer to discuss a reduced fee.
Should circumstances change and you wish to cancel your registration, a full refund less credit card processing fee will be issued if notice is given 7 days prior to the retreat. A 50% refund less credit card processing fee will be issued after April 27th, 2017.
