“Think of how someone wrings out a wet towel with all his or her might and then releases. Our lives should be like this. For without a doubt it is through maintaining the right balance of intensity in our practice and of relaxation – sitting back and enjoying life – that genuine understanding develops.”
Led by: Daizan Roshi and Shinkai Roshi
Dates: Saturday, June 9th – Wednesday, June 20th 2018

2018 will be our 6th year visiting Japan. After the Zen retreat we’ll be experiencing the ancient temples of Nara, Kyoto, and hopefully spending some time at Gyokuryuji with Shinzan Roshi. We’ll have an opportunity to do the Japanese tea ceremony (sado), sacred mountain hiking, waterfall practice, traditional Japanese food eating and much more. Check out some of the things we did in the past. There are still a few places left! For questions or to register, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
