Overnight Retreat with Father Robert Kennedy Roshi
March 27, 2020 05:00 PM - March 29, 2020 01:00 PM

IDEAL FOR: All Levels. This is a silent retreat.

Shunryu Suzuki is famous for saying, “Each of you is perfect the way you are ... and you can use a little improvement.” Zen is the art of paradoxically living these two truths simultaneously and meeting each moment exactly as it is with readiness and openness.

During this weekend retreat, we’ll explore Zen practice from an experiential and embodied perspective. Modeled on the traditional Zen retreat or sesshin, this silent retreat includes:

· Wisdom from the Buddhist and Christian traditions

· Beginner’s instruction

· Zazen (seated meditation)

· Kinhin (walking meditation) and Chanting

· Dharma talks and Daisan (one on one interviews with the teacher)

Easy on and off shoes are recommended.

Tuition: $250, plus accommodations
