Dear Friends,

Details for the Chung Chau Retreat

Getting there:

The ferry schedule can be found at www.nwff.com or google Chung Chau ferry schedule. Our retreat begins at 5:00 pm on the 30th so pick a time for departure that will get you there in time to arrive, walk to the Salasian Retreat Centre, check in and have a quiet moment for something to drink and relax.

The fast ferry is every hour on the 45 and takes 35 minutes 12:45, 13:45 etc..
The normal ferry leaves on the 15 i.e. 12:15, 13:15 etc and takes one hour. I will be on the 09:45 ferry to have all carry-on (blankets and food) carried by our Mr. Ho. If anyone else would like there props carried by Mr. Ho and his flatbed, please plan to meet me to load your items for this ferry. We can take them over earlier for you. For those coming on Saturday please check the schedule. The second morning session begins at 9:00. A.M.

It is about a 20 minute walk from pier to Salesian Retreat Centre. I will send a map of the area later. (After my lesson on how to upload an attachment!!

What to Bring For Yoga Practice:

Mat, 2 blocks, 1-2 straps, towel or two, shawl or sarong (to use as a cover for savasana), any other props you have, you would like with you. Pack a journal with your favorite pen for writing.

Towel for bathing, shampoo, soap (think of camping). yoga clothing, mozzy cream.

Shoes for walking, clothing for the water should you want to go to the beach during the afternoon free-time. Don’t forget thongs for bathing.

Helen Go’s helper, Gaga will prepare our meals – simple and healthy, nourishing foods for our lunch and dinner. If you drink coffee, please bring it along with any snacks or favorites you would like to have with you. Bring a favorite to share!

Please check in with me when you arrive for your room arrangements.
Let me know if you will be sharing or plan to have a room on your own. At this point they have given us a few extra rooms. If you prefer a private room, let me know, it’s very reasonable should you prefer to be on your own. Given the spiritual work we are doing this would be a good idea.

Everyone thank you for your kindness and compassion as we share this time together.

Our last class will end at 12:15. Lunch will be served and we are free to stay until 3:00. That leaves time for a nice walk or time on your own.
Please see the ferry schedule that suits your needs.

If you have any further questions:
I will be arriving the evening of the 21th. Please send me your hand phone number by text should I want to reach you. My number is 852 6292 5440. (same number as always).

I am looking forward to this opportunity to practice with you there in Hong Kong close but far from the hustle and bustle. Please ask your families to afford you this time to give to yourself and in the end to them. By revitalizing and rejuvenating your energy you will create more of you for your family and your business. Spend this time healing your body, your mind and your spirit. A special gift for yourself we can all will appreciate!!

Namaste, Kathy
