Give yourself a day for serious practice. Our intensive retreats follow the traditional Chan monastery retreat schedule, making the most efficient use of time in group practice.
Sitting periods are forty-minutes, and minimal instruction is given. Participants should arrive already knowing the basics techniques of meditation and be mentally and physically prepared for the demanding regimen.

Attending the Day of Stillness retreat the day before would be excellent preparation for attending this intensive retreat. If you attend both events you are welcome to stay over in our dormitory.

Most people find that attending these one-day retreats regularly can help renew the strength of their daily practice. The fee includes a vegetarian lunch.

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.
