YEAR OF EVENTS :

These vivid lines begin one of the most beloved and commented upon of all Zen texts, the Hsin Hsin Ming (Faith in Mind), a sixth-century poem by the third Chan patriarch, Seng Ts'an. The poem is a masterpiece of economy. expressing the profoundest truth of the enlightened mind in only a few short pages.

On this Chan retreat, Master Chi Chern will use Faith in Mind as the basis of his Dharma talks, leading us in understanding and applying the concepts of the poem to the methods of meditation. The methods will be taught in the context of daily life activities, such as sitting, standing, walking, sleeping, working, and eating. Chanting and gentle yoga exercises further harmonize the body, breath, and mind. Master Chi Chern will also give personal interviews to provide additional guidance.

NOTE: Talks will be given in Chinese with English translation.
