An evening practice with monastics from Deer Park Monastery
This summer, Deer Park Monastery’s brothers will travel 4500 miles in five weeks to visit local Sanghas in ten western states. The Happiness is the Way: Road Retreat provides a wonderful opportunity to practice with your monastic siblings, share practice experiences, and build siblinghood.
According to Brother Ngo Khong (AKA Brother Freedom) “After a year of uncertainty, solitude and various limitations that might have even deepened and strengthened our practice, we want to come together again to share our experiences of practice, bask in each other’s presence, and build siblinghood.”
The Road Retreat starts in Phoenix on August 12th and concludes in San Francisco on September 19th. The three brothers will travel in a RV, dubbed “Dharma Wheelzz”. Each stop is hosted by a local Sangha. The activities range from single to multi-day non-residential retreats to Sangha evenings. You are welcome to join as many of the stops as you are able. The full Road Retreat schedule and links to registration are below.
We hope to see you later this summer. The brothers are very excited to reach out and get to know your Sanghas, your state, your city…YOU!
In gratitude and wonder of this moment,
The Deer Park Monastery brothers
