Vietnamese New Year – Tết

On Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of February, we will celebrate the Tết, the vietnamese New Year.

Joining us

You are all welcome to join us in this, either for one day or for both, or for the whole week-end as part of our Winter Retreat program if there is space.

If you wish to stay for only one night, you are welcome to rest in the meditation hall, without going trough the registration system. Note that you can use sitting mats as mattresses, but we ask you to bring your own sleeping bag. The contribution in that case will be based on free donation.
