October 27 | Day of Mindfulness in Vietnamese

A Day of Mindfulness, led by Thich Nhat Hanh, will take place at Tu Viện Kim Sơn in Watsonville, California. The day will begin at 9:00am and is open to everyone. No advance registration is required but a donation for the teaching and meal is welcome. Because the event is open to the public at no cost, attendees should plan on arriving early. The teaching on this day will be in Vietnamese.

As with all our events, we encourage participants to share rides wherever possible in order to reduce the environmental aspect of traveling. Please use the commenting system below to make connections with other participants to offer rides and insights on reducing the impact.

    Will there be translations available of any kind? I would love to see the master….Thank you!

      That is a big unknown at this time. My understanding is their may not be translation, at least not on a large scale, so if you come and there isn’t then just practice being present.

        Thank you very much for your reply!

  • Aileen Cureton

    I too am interested to know if there will be any translations. Would love to spend the day learning (and being present is also a beautiful way to experience I’m sure).

      There may be some, especially since some of the monastics are not Vietnamese, but I don’t know how widely available it will be.

    do we need to bring our own cushions and lunch?

    • http://kenleyneufeld.com Kenley Neufeld

      Unfortunately, I don’t actually know the answer to this question. It is likely that you can just show up and be taken care of for the day.

    Any more updates on the possibility of English translation? What is the schedule for the day. I checked the Kim Son web site but it is Vietnamese. Thanks!

      Very unlikely is the latest word.

  • Tinh Vien

    can we arrive a day early and camp over night for the event

    • http://kenleyneufeld.com Kenley Neufeld

      I believe there is a retreat occurring already at the monastery and therefore unlikely others could come early.

      There are two places nearby to camp. The Mount Madonna County park (408-842-2341) or The Mount Madonna Center (rooms or camp) which requires 24 hour preregistration. You can register for the center online at mountmadonna.org.

    Tôi có thể cung cấp một chuyến đi đến một người nào đó từ San Francisco đến Kim Sơn nhưng tôi sẽ phải rời khỏi sau khi ăn trưa. Bạn có thể muốn để có được một chuyến đi với một người nào đó trở lại bởi vì tôi đã phải về sớm. Ngoài ra, tôi đang học tiếng Việt nhưng tiếng Việt. Tôi nói tiếng Anh, chỉ có một ít tiếng Việt. Tôi viết bài này với sự giúp đỡ của Google dịch. Chúng tôi sẽ cần phải rời khỏi bởi 06:30 Nếu bạn muốn một chuyến đi, xin vui lòng gọi cho tôi: bốn một năm – tám sáu một – một hai tám 0 . hẹn gặp lại! :) Kate
