Huatou – the diamond sword that cuts off all attachments.

In this 7-day retreat the meditation method of “huatou” will be introduced. Using the investigating Huatou practice to provoke doubt sensation around life, birth and death, thus eradicating the shell of ignorance, klesa, uncovering the nature of mind.

A "Beginner's mind" is a mind open to experiencing life in the present moment, free from preconceived notions and expectations -- a mind open to genuine understanding and self-realization. If you are new to meditation practice, or have never participated in a retreat, this is an ideal way to begin your spiritual journey.

In addition to sessions of seated meditation, this retreat features interactive workshops, including:

The Art of Sitting

Quintessential instructions on seated meditation in the Chan tradition, also teaches various ways to massage the body. An opportunity for students to ask questions and difficulties relating to practice.

The Art of Walking

Teaches three forms of walking meditation methods: slow walking, fast walking, and natural walk. Very often we take walking for granted. But the art of walking can show us how to open up new possibilities in our experience of the world.

The Art of Questioning

Explores the fundamental question of who we are as human beings through an introduction to the Chan Gong'an (Japanese: Koan) method, which confronts the most fundamental questions of our existence. The quest for meaning is the drive behind all Buddhist practitioners. The format of this workshop is dialogue and discussion.
Beginner’s Meditation Class Take the first step toward creating calm and clarity in your life. Learning the fundamentals of sitting meditation, relaxation, methods of concentration and meditation in motion. Peace of mind is within your reach, even in the face of conflict and stress.
