Waking Up Together: A Weekend of Zen Practice – 2019

About This Event

IDEAL FOR: All levels including beginners, and those of all religious and non-religious affiliations

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 is $250 plus accommodations.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
