Nothing matters and everything must go
Yet love is having the heart touched
In the valleys of suffering.
~Chan Master John H Crook

We are evolving our offerings due to Covid. This retreat is now planned to be a three (partial) day meditation workshop online.

Join us for a 3-Day, 3-hours per day Virtual Meditation Workshop. The first day we will use language to explore nothingness, which creates a space and opportunity to directly experience Meditative Mind. Then the next two days we will describe and experience several different types of meditation practices. The basic structure of the workshop includes a description of the practice, practicing the practice, and then providing space to share insights and ask questions.

Zen Time means: “In Your Seat” with the video on - 5 minutes Early
