About This Event
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.

As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!
