Beginner's Mind Retreat
Zen Buddhism offers practices to settle and harmonize the body-and-mind , allowing us to appreciate the freedom and spaciousness of life in the present moment.
During this weekend we will follow a monastic schedule, which allows us to temporarily drop what’s outside and go deeply into inner work. All elements of a meditation retreat will be covered, including basic meditation techniques, posture, breathing, formal meals, and dealing with obstructions.
$50 non-refundable deposit required to reserve your space - balance due on arrival.
