Meditation Retreat with Venerable Yuttadhammo Thero, December 26, 2015

Venerable Maha Sangha,
Dear Devotees,

On Saturday December 26, 2015, Venerable Yuttadhammo will return to FBV for a one day meditation retreat for both children and adults. We warmly welcome all to attend this beneficial event for the whole family. Venerable Yuttadhammo is the creator of the How to Meditate for Children series and will have copies of this teaching on DVD to give to the children in attendance.

This retreat is a wonderful opportunity to trade the hectic pace of this season for a day of calming the body and mind through meditation and listening to the dhamma. The benefits of such a day, last long after the retreat is over. We hope you will join us for the following program:

8:30 am-9:30 am Introduction and beginning of the program
10:00 am-11:00 am  Dhamma sermon/discussion for kids
11:00 am           Buddha pooja
