How do we collectively transform ourselves, our communities, and our civilization to move toward a future of our highest collective possibilities?
Hence, the great work of our time is to carry out the transition from the current period where humans are a destructive presence on the Earth to one where the human presence is mutually beneficial to the planet and the entire community of life – a mutually enhancing human/earth relationship. To do this we need to undergo, at both an individual and collective level, a fundamental transformation – a virtual reinvention of what we consider the role of human beings to be.

Come and be part of this free workshop!

Date Saturday, 6 August 2016
Time 9:30am – 3:30pm
Venue Mt Colah Community Centre, Pierre Close, Mt Colah

7-night Residential Retreat

7:00pm Saturday 3rd December to
10:30am Saturday 10th December 2016

Leader: Simon Child

Venue: Maenllwyd, Wales

The ancient Chinese Zen practices of investigating Huatou and Gongan (Koan) are best practised in a supportive environment such as this intensive silent retreat. As one becomes deeply absorbed in the practice, mental constructions drop away and one is confronted by a realisation that one does not know the nature of existence and one's fundamental assumptions of life are groundless. Staying with and cultivating this 'doubt', it can become all-consuming 'Great doubt' which may 'shatter', giving a direct insight into reality which may be what is known as an Enlightenment experience.

To progress in these methods requires a sustained focus and so this retreat is recommended particularly for those with previous experience of intensive retreat, and prior attendance at a Western Zen Retreat is advisable, but serious beginners are also accepted.
