Mindfulness Practice Community of Houston Retreat

American Bodhi Center, Hempstead, TX October 12-15

Registration is open for the Mindfulness Practice Community of Houston’s fall retreat with Dharma teacher Michael Ciborski. More information and online registration are available at

The Center follows the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. Michael lived as a monk for seven years in Plum Village, France, and has worked intimately with Thich Nhat Hanh and the monastic community to organize, support and offer meditation retreats around the world.

The retreat centers on periods of sitting and walking meditation and Dharma talks by Michael Ciborski, including small-group Dharma discussions, meal meditations, and active, mindful work practice. Periods of silence will deepen and enrich the experience by allowing time for personal reflection.
