JUNE 16 - 30, 2019

The Male Ordination and Training Retreat provided participants the training and space to deepen and strengthen their Buddhist and meditation practice. Our intensive two-week program, spanning from June 16-30, 2019, offered the full experience of life within the Buddhist novice monkhood. The second week of the program opened to people who want to participate without joining monkhood.

Participants came from all over the country to attend the training with the hope of expanding their knowledge of Buddhism and gaining better meditation experiences. The program included participants from Northern and Southern California, Illinois, and Alabama. The program focused on the development of public speaking skills and personal development. Upon completion of the training, participants qualified to be meditation teaching assistants. Congratulations to our participants for completing the training and to our venerable teachers for providing the guidance and mentorship.
