各位同修 Dear friends,
在經歷三年新冠疫情的活動限制後，我們很高興可以恢復禪修活動。在6月端午假期時段，我們邀請您參加為期四日的正念禪修營。正念是一種友善地覺知當下的能力。培養正念能讓我們在繁忙的生命裡找到內在的平靜及產生了解自己及他人的智慧。更重要的是透過如坐禪、行禪, 瑜伽, 正念交谈等修習，學習和掌握正念後，可將正念帶到人際關係及日常生活中，幫助提升生活的質素。
We are delighted to invite you joining us during the Dragon Boat festival in the four-day mindfulness retreat at Fa Hong Monastery. Mindfulness is a gentle awareness of our present moment body and mind states. With the skilful cultivation of mindfulness, it gives us inner peace and the wisdom of understanding oneself. In this silent retreat, we will practice sitting, walking meditation, mindful eating, mindful work and mindfulness interpersonal interaction. By cultivating the wholesome qualities of the mind, we can apply them into our daily life to live with ease and wisdom.
We serve healthy vegetarian food at the monastery.

This retreat is for people with mindfulness meditation experience and those who have joined three days or more silent residential retreat before. To avoid disruptions, all participants are required to attend the whole retreat without being late or leaving early.
In order to cover the costs of food, logistics, hiring a cook and facilities for the retreat, there will be a fee of HK$1000. (HK$250 per day) Because retreat space is limited, this deposit is required to confirm your participation and is non-refundable within 7 days of the start of the retreat.
· You are also invited to donate to the teachers separately in appreciation for their time, support, and sharing of knowledge and experience.
· We offer financial support to join the retreat if needed.
If rather than attending the retreat you would like to serve as a volunteer, please contact us.

Ideally this would be someone who is already familiar with Fa Hong operations.
