YOUTH MEDITATION RETREAT :D
This will be a time for you to take a break from schoolwork!
This will be a time for all you precious people to relax!

Also, it will be one of the rare chances where we are going to have 2 extremely knowledgeable and experienced Dhamma speakers, Bro Piya Tan and Bro Teoh Ren Shang, to guide us for meditation instructions and give us Dhamma talks!

Hence, BF youths are highly encouraged to join in and experience inner peace like never before :D

The DETAILS of the retreat are as follows:

Date: 18th March (Thurs) to 21st March (Sun)
Time: from 8pm (18th) to 1.30pm (21st)
Venue: Dhamma Hall of PES
Cost: $15 for meals and your interest :D

*Note: Thursday night will be a stayover! The meditation retreat starts officially on the morning of the 19th. However we decided to have a stay-over on the 18th so as to reduce the inconvenience of those who have to travel to PES in the morning of the 19th.

Rules of Engagement:
1. The retreat will be a 5 precept retreat.
2. Handphone usage will not be allowed except during stipulated times
3. Retreat will be centered around meditation with instructions in the morning
and afternoon, with Dhamma talks in the evening, please adhere strictly to the schedule.
4. Meals will be vegetarian in keeping with PES rules.
5. As the retreat space is sacred, "visits" to friends by non-retreatants not encouraged.

The registration and indemnity forms should be available with your leaders so you guys can ask them for it if you are interested! Payment and Submission of forms are to be done together to Xuan or Jun Xian.

It will definitely be an eye-opening experience that no one should miss out on! So we hope to see you there! (though we can't talk to you since noble silence will be observed. hahahaha)

For further details, please contact Jun Xian or Xuan :D
