Retreat Program for 2008
We are last getting settled in our big old house in Honeydew. We are ready and eager to start teaching the Buddha Dharma and meditation.
Master Hui Re will start beginner teachings in July 2008.
The teachings will consist of Chinese tea and a Dharma talk, Q & A, and meditation.
No previous knowledge of Buddhism or previous meditation experience is required.
To begin with Master Hui Re will teach basic Buddhist concepts and meditation so that practitioners have the necessary background to understand and practice Pure Land Buddhism. Teachings will be recorded and will be available on CD or can be downloaded from the Internet after the classes. The teachings will be progressive: you will need to come to every class (or most classes) as each class will build on and progress from the previous class. Of course, if you miss an occasional class you can listen to the CD to catch. up.
Dates of sessions: Sunday 13 July and Sunday 27 July
Times: 8h30 for 09h00 – 12h30.
Address: 249 Beyers Naude Drive opposite Garden World. Its about 17 kilometers from Cresta
