YEAR OF EVENTS :

Dedicate your weekend to practice. On this retreat, you have the chance to engage in a relaxing schedule of mindful activity from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.

Harmonize your body and mind, by engaging in healthy living and meditation — balancing all of the five aspects of diet, sleep, body, breath, and mind. Either in stillness or in motion, cultivate a clear and stable mind amidst all that you do. This is the very essence of practice.

Settling into the weekend routine, you will experience greater relaxation of body and calmness of mind. Hear Dharma talks about meditation methods as well as basic principles of Buddhadharma. In this way, you'll be able to establish a solid foundation of understanding both methods and concepts of practice.

This event is open to all Dharma friends who have been volunteers at DDRC for for at least three years, or who have volunteered at an intensive retreat at least five times.

The precious teachings of our respected founder and teacher, Chan Master Sheng Yen (Shifu) live on when 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 supervisor who will lead the practice in the Chan Hall.
