Youth & Teens Awake Summer Retreat

Universal Door Meditation Center cordially welcomes all youth and teens from 10 to 18 years of age to the Awake Summer Retreat 2023, where they will be guided by the two Awakened Teachers, Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien, the Abbess of Universal Door Meditation Center, and Zen Master Thich Thong Hoi, the Abbot of Suoi Tu Meditation Center, and the nuns, who will cultivate and nurture the seeds of Awake in them. They will experience 5 days of residential summer retreat at Universal Door Meditation Center.


Awake Summer Retreat will help youth and teens to understand about the Luminous Mind in themselves and the wonders of returning to the Luminuous Mind. As a result, they will realize amazing transformations inside them; they will be more open, lighter, calm, no more stresses and conflicts at school or at home; life becomes vibrant and happy.


During the 5 days of the Awake Summer Retreat, youth and teens will be living in an Awake environment, close to nature, not losing themselves in technology and electronic games. They will enjoy outdoor and indoor Wisdom games, Zen arts and crafts, group sharings, discussing the benefits of returning to the Luminuous Mind, singing Awake songs written by Awakened Zen Masters, and Awake meditation practice on the venue of Universal Door Meditation Center with natural landscapes.


For the benefits and the future of the children as well as the whole family, we sincerely hope that parents will register kids to attend the 5-day Awake Summer Retreat organized by Universal Door Meditation Center every summer, to give your children the opportunity to experience the Perfect Joy of Awake, step by step allow inner transformations, which in turn helps their life at home, at school, and in the future to have Awakened happiness.
