Vancouver 2011 has received a green light.
A Five Stones car-caravan to the retreat?.......
The titles for the events will be:
For the Retreat: August 8 - 12, 2011
"Awakening the Heart" - A retreat with the Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh and monks and nuns of Plum Village, Deer Park Monastery, Blue Cliff Monastery and Magnolia Village"
For the Public Talk at the Orpheum: Sunday August 14, 2011
"Open Mind, Open Heart: touching the wonders of now" - An evening with the Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh and monastics of Plum Village, Deer Park Monastery, Blue Cliff Monastery and Magnolia Village".
This is truly wonderful news and I would be interested to hear from anyone who maybe interested in volunteering before, during and after these events. I will continue to keep everyone on this list up to date with any other news.
Start saving a "looney or tooney a day" so you can attend or send a friend to the residential retreat at UBC!!!!
With mindful hugs from beautiful B.C.
