Dear friends,
Today, we share with you a small taste of retreat at Deer Park Monastery.  Sister Man Nghiem and Brother Phap Hai give a short introduction to life at the monastery for new retreatants. She shares about connecting with others while sharing rooms and connecting with ourselves during the practice of Noble Silence.  And our brother gives guidance to help us feel comfortable and relaxed during sitting meditation.
Registration is now open for this year's general retreat at Deer Park Monastery. Whether you have never been on retreat or been on many, the monastics and lay friends welcome you to take refuge at the practice center.  The retreat will be from September 10th to 14th with the theme, "I have enough".  More information can be found at
Lastly, the Dharmacast team would like to invite you to participate in our new project, Summer Love Letters.  The monastics have dedicated their lives to sharing the Dharma with you and it nourishes their practice to hear how their dedication has touched your life.  If a sharing on the podcast has touched you deeply, please write a love letter, a love note, or even just a love sentence to the monastics at Deer Park.  Send it to the Dharmacast and throughout the summer, we hope to share your love letter on the air to nourish the monastics at Deer Park and inspire other listeners in the worldwide Dharmacast sangha.  
Remember, you can always find the Deer Park Monastery at and on Facebook, iTunes, and Twitter.  We welcome dharma sharings from our worldwide listeners on any of our online homes or by email at dpcastlove(~at~)  Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.
