Please be informed all participants who wish to join the Retreat are requested to sign up with the organising committee AND NOT go on your own and later to discover we did not make any reservations for accommodation etc etc. This would also enable all participants to travel as one group from Malaysia and to minimise inconveniences to avoid logistics problems like visas, reservations for hotel and accommodation at the monastery guest house.
