A Spiritual New Year Celebration

A Spiritual New Year Celebration

On January 1st 2016 we will have a special sunrise dharma service at Avoca Beach. Wake up early and join us between 4.30 - 5am near the lifeguard tower, as we welcome the new year with calm and hopeful minds. We will sit in meditation, watch the sun rise and move our bodies in gentle yoga stretches. 

After our time on the beach we will return to Won Meditation Centre for Dharma Service at 8am when Head Dharma Master Kyongsan's New Year message will be read.
If you can't make it to sunrise meditation, please join us in the temple at 8am.

After that, let's eat traditional tteokguk - rice cake soup together.
The white tteok signifying purity and cleanliness would be eaten as a ritual to start off the New Year for good fortune."

What better way to begin the new year?
