Join us for a weekend of inspiration, meet fellow volunteers from around and beyond the U.S, and learn about Master Cheng Yen’s Dharma and the Tzu Chi spirit!

The fifth annual Tzu Chi USA Spiritual Retreat will be held on August 16-18, 2019, at the Tzu Chi Mid-Atlantic Region Office in Cedar Grove, New Jersey. This year, our slogan is “Enrich Your Life, Awaken Your Heart.” Through exploring the ingredients of contentment, gratitude, understanding, and forgiveness in the “Four-ingredient Spiritual Soup,” we hope to create a recipe to help people find peace within their hearts. By awakening the peace within themselves, we aim at creating a world enriched with opportunities. All events will be hosted and led in English.

We would like to especially invite English-speaking trainees and volunteers, Tzu Ching, Tzu Ching Alumni, volunteers in charge of or interested in volunteer training in English, mentoring or outreach, and officers in Tzu Chi USA’s volunteering system.

Please mark your calendars and plan ahead!
