Liberation Beyond Belief

April 4 - 7, 2024

Thursday 5pm to Sunday 1pm

Our practice is a continual invitation to expand our view. As our view expands, we no longer live tethered to our preferences, judgements and beliefs about how we think the world should be. We come to see that even the most tumultuous and challenging circumstances can become opportunities for deep insight and possibility.

 Our Zazen practice gives us a foundation upon which insight can land and be cultivated. It gives us a base upon which we can move with the winds of change. Here is our space to ground, to root, and then to look around with fresh eyes. What is this world and what can I do to help?

By learning to trust and embody our natural resiliency and cultivating a heart of compassion and wisdom, we are able to step forward in service, to ourselves and to our world.


This is a meditation retreat and workshop. There will be time spent in the zendo as well as time spent connecting and contemplating together.
