SILENT RETREAT @ FO GUANG SHAN BUDDHIST MONASTERY

Silence is a wonderful way to reconnect with one's authentic self. Take the time to be fully present in an environment of few distractions where you can connect with the peace and tranquility that resides within. This get away offers a much needed breather from the high energy environment of daily life. Although the main focus is silence there will also be an opportunity for open discussion about people's experiences during the retreat as well as a chance to peer briefly into core principles of Buddhism and get a taste of modern day monastic living.

Where: Fo Guang Shan Monastery, Da Shu, Kaohsiung Co.

Cost: 2000 NT covers both food and lodging

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: December 12th, 2010
