THE RETREAT will be lead by the Sisters of Nhap Luu Monastery, and INCLUDES  three Vegan meals a day, and simple accommodation (inside Peace House, and/or camping).

Please be sure you bring warm clothes - socks, sweater, warm (thermal) underwear, jacket, gloves, etc) in case the temperature drops. This can happen quite dramatically in this region. 
OPTIONAL: YOU ARE INVITED to help us better protect our planet, by bringing - if you choose - your own cloth table napkin/serviette (less trees will be unnecessarily cut down because of you!) and keeping it with you throughout the retreat. Also, if you like, your own mug which will reduce the waste we create with disposable cups.
A DONATION of $180.00 is requested, to cover costs (or pro-rata at $60.00 per  day)
CONCESSIONS are available, at $40.00 per day.

Thay in Thailand
For those who might like to participate in a retreat lead by our Teacher himself, but are not able to go further afield right now - a reminder that in April 2013 Thay starts his 2013 South East Asia Tour - in Thailand. There are two retreats  there, and the details are up on the Thai Plum Village website. Register on line. Some Sangha members have already decided to attend, and it could be really wonderful for a group to share the experience! www.thaiplumvillage.org The tour goes on after that to Hong Kong and Korea but we haven’t researched detail of those sectors.
