Q&A:

Q: Is this a religious practice?
A: Not at all. This is a mindfulness practice. Right Mindfulness is the path Buddha taught to achieve the bliss of happiness. Monks are here to teach and share their experiences and meditate with the team. Everyone is welcome and treated equally. If you have daily religious observations, feel free to practice them in your personal room.
Q: What should I bring?
A: All you need is an open mind, a passion for mindfulness, and your personal belongings. Room items will be provided.
Q: Are phones allowed?
A: During the sessions, we don’t allow the use of phones as we focus on practicing one thing at a time for our mindfulness. However, in your room, you can use your phone. Just remember not to let your phone use you, as it can distract you from maintaining right mindfulness.
Q: What if I’m unable to follow the timetable?
A: We have faith in you, and together we can make it work. If you ever feel tired, feel free to relax mindfully in your room and take the time you need.
Q: Why should I consider donating to the program?
A: Think about how you felt when you experienced discomfort, anxiety, stress, or depression in your life. It’s worth helping someone overcome such situations and find practical ways to cope. The monks freely share their experiences, and by donating to arrange more mindful retreats, we can become a part of the greater good to help humanity. 
Q: What should I wear?
A: We kindly ask all attendees to dress comfortably and modestly during the retreat. Please choose clothing that allows you to move freely and feel at ease throughout the activities.
