From October 4-6, 2017 the Middle Way Meditation Institute organized the International Middle Way Three-Day Meditation retreat at Pop House, Suan Tawan Dhamma. The retreat program was put together for foreigners who love inner peace to have the opportunity to practice the fundamentals of meditation and have a chance to learn Dhamma, that universal for all and put it to use to benefit their daily lives.
At the retreat, the participants were trained to meditate and learn the principles of Universal Goodness. They also learned valuable Buddhist cultures such as paying respect to monks, wiping and cleaning dishes thoroughly, and placing shoes in an orderly row. Everyone could adapt such knowledge into their daily lives in their own countries. The teaching monks also taught Dhamma suitable for the occasion to help the participants progress in their meditation.
Moreover, this program offered a variety of special activities including yoga, soap bubble blowing, offering food to the monks, and sharing meditation obstacles and experiences . The teaching monk kindly gave advice and solutions to obstacles and provided techniques to allow participants to progress in their meditation. Each participant was able to improve their meditation. Toward the end of the program participants visited Wat Phra Dhammakaya and took a group picture to remember the day.
