K17068: THE FAMILY AS SANGHA Retreat for Dutch-speaking families with children between 0 and 12 years24.05.2017 - 28.05.2017
Course with Tineke Spruytenburg, Brother Phap Xa and other experienced members of the order of Inter-being
Our goal in this retreat is to organize our everyday lives as a Sangha. How can we listen mindfully and get to know each other better? How can we practice together in a playful way? How can we satisfy the many different needs within the family? How can we organize a family to be like a genuine Sangha?
Most activities are offered for the families; but we will also have some separate practice times for adults and children. This year a few Dutch-speaking brothers and sisters will participate in the retreat to support the families and offer their energies and insights.
Retreat language: Dutch.
The lay teacher kindly asks for a donation, see p. XXX.
