Young Adult Meditation Retreat (ages 14 and up)

Dear Parents and Young Dhamma Friends,

We would like to invite you to participate in a five-day special retreat under the guidance of Sayadaw U Thuzana at Tathagata Meditation Center (TMC) from 7 pm July 21st  to 4 pm July 25th, 2017.

The purpose of the five-day Young Adult Meditation Retreat is to introduce young people to the benefits of a formal meditation retreat. According to the Buddha, both study and practice are essential for one following the Dhamma. We want to give young people an opportunity to understand the Buddha’s teachings through their own experience.  Practicing Vipassana Meditation will develop strength and purity of mind, which they can carry with them into any arena of life.

To be accepted to the retreat, applicants must meet the following requirements without any exceptions:

1. Must be 14 years of age or older.

2. Fill out both the Registration Application and the Rules and Regulations including both signatures of student and parent (if under 18 years of age) and mail them back July 9th, 2017.

3.  Check in between 7 pm and 8 pm on Friday July 21, 2017 if registration application is accepted.

We will inform you of your registration status by email at least one week before the retreat.  Applicants who have been accepted are strongly encouraged to have their parents attending the Opening Ceremony and Orientation at 8 pm on Friday July 21, 2017 with them. It is essential that students attending the retreat follow the center’s rules and regulations so that the retreat can be run effectively and efficiently.

The Young Adult Retreat is offered free of charge. However, any donations are welcome and greatly appreciated.  Should you have any question about the Summer Young Adult Meditation Retreat, please contact Mr. Son Tu at 408-391-3690 or at email address: sontusila@aol.com.

We look forward to seeing all of you. May you be happy and peaceful!

In Metta,

Tathagata Meditation Center
