Lá Thư Trại Trưởng - Camp Director's Welcome Message

Dear Monastic Sangha and Retreat participants,

Greetings and a warm welcome to the Retreat of Awakening!

I am thrilled to extend my heartiest welcome to all of you as we will soon embark on an exciting journey filled with laughter, friendship, and unforgettable memories. As the 2023 Camp Director, I can assure you that we have an enriching Mindfulness program planned, offering a unique opportunity for personal growth and exploration.

Our dedicated staff members have worked tirelessly to create a fun, inclusive environment where participants can practice Mindfulness in many different forms, discover new passions, and build lasting connections with fellow participants from diverse backgrounds.

Throughout the retreat, we will celebrate our 10th anniversary milestone, encourage personal growth, and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime. The friendships formed and the experiences shared here will leave an indelible mark on everyone involved.  We hope everyone will embrace the spirit of loving-kindness, appreciate the value of our breath, and capture many Kodak moments with one another.

Safe travels to everyone and we look forward to meeting you soon!  

With Metta,

Thầy Chánh Trí
