 ____________________________________________________________

We'll need 6 people to commit to participate through RSVP by Wednesday, January 25, 2017

We will go over the details of the schedule and assign retreat positions and responsibilities at the orientation

Cost is $40.00.

We will provide hot coffee and tea throughout the day.  Participants are required to bring their choice of prepared foods for breakfast and lunch.  There is a microwave for heating foods.

Please, bring an art or hand craft project to color, draw, paint, sew, knit, weave, etc. during the art/hand craft period. Though we highly value creative writing and writing in general, because one point of our commitment to silence during the retreat is to help us taste the peace available to us as the discursive mind quiets, creative writing or journaling during the art/craft period is discouraged.

RSVP to sweepingheartzen@gmail.com by Wednesday, 1/25/17.  If you have questions before the orientation on 1/27/17, email them to sweepingheartzen@gmail.com.

Thanks,

Mark

Happy Holidays, Peace! Love! Health! Safety! Joy! to you, your family, and everyone!
