Buddhist Youth Summer Retreat
The retreat will prepare the children during their growing years
into adulthood to think more wisely, to act more polite and
compassionate towards their parents, siblings, as well as other
people in society. With the advent of technologies, our children
seem to loose connection with others outside of their immediate
family. The retreat will help orient and guide children to have
better morality and beliefs, and teach them the art of living
based on the Buddha's teaching. The preparation and
experience that children will learn during this short week of
retreat will surely carry them far in their future. According to
Thai traditions, all young men have to spend upward to three
years living a monastic life before marriage, to acquire better
understanding of becoming more moral, filial, solid, complete in
leading a happy life.
* Retreat Guidelines:
Learn the arts of gracious living even in walking, standing,
sitting and sleeping. Learn to contemplate while eating,
listening, interacting with others.
Activities include learning different forms of meditation, respectfully bowing to Buddha, studying the dharma, and many outdoor exercise and activities.
