"Simple Steps of Wisdom, Journey to Awakening"

The 28th INCOVAR Dhamma Camp which is themed "Simple Steps of Wisdom, Journey to Awakening" will be held from 29th Nov - 2nd Dec 2007 at Klang & Coast Buddhist Association (KCBA).

The 28th INCOVAR Dhamma Camp strives to bring a new perspective of mental cultivation in this fast paced, modern day lifestyle. By approaching mental cultivation as a daily practice that can be both fun and practical, this camp will bring participants to a new height of awareness that makes everyday life a journey of appreciation rather than merely the mundane.

The camp will also explore the individuality and expressions of each participant, to celebrate the unique quirks that defines our personality, even as we value the similarities that brings us together to nurture a fellowship of loving kindness and spiritual friends in support of each other.

Camp fee is RM75 but early bird rate of RM65 is applicable to the first 20 registration before 1 Oct 2007. Stay tuned for online registration service to be up by 9 Sep! Contact Ji Long @ 0123043438 for payment enquiries or click on "comment" below to post up any other enquiries.
