7-night Residential Retreat

7:00pm Saturday 28th May to
11:00am Saturday 4th June 2016

Leader: Jake Lyne

Venue: Bala Brook Retreat Centre, Dartmoor

Silent Illumination is a profound meditation practice which leads to a mind of great calmness and insight, using ancient Chinese Zen methods which are just as applicable to the modern West. Silent Illumination is the origin of the Japanese Soto practice of Shikantaza but is approached somewhat differently and full instruction will be given.

This seven-night silent retreat is an opportunity to learn and deepen this practice through intensive meditation, with instruction and personal guidance by individual interviews with an experienced teacher. Whether or not a breakthrough to Enlightenment may occur, establishing a practice gives a firm basis for subsequent ongoing mindfulness and compassion in everyday life.

Previous experience of a residential retreat is recommended but serious beginners are also accepted.
"Don't be concerned with whether or not you get enlightened,
just simply pick up the huatou."

Our respected founder and teacher, Chan Master Sheng Yen ("Shifu"), passed away in 2009.

Although he had been leading Chan retreats across the world for 30 years, many people regret that they did not get the chance to practice under his guidance. However, his precious teachings live on in our "Master Sheng Yen Retreat" where we utilize videos of his talks from past retreats. In this way, we hope to preserve and continue to share the Dharma Drum Lineage's Chan practice with the world, and give practitioners an opportunity to hear these teachings on intensive retreat, as spoken directly from the founder himself.

In addition to receiving instruction from Shifu's video lectures, you will also have guidance from an experienced Chan teacher who will lead the practice in the Chan Hall. Also, you will receive personal instruction through one-to-one interviews, where the teacher will ensure that you have a firm grasp of the concepts and methods of Chan.
