Busy? Stressed? Fatigued? And no time to enjoy life? These are just few of the many side-effects feeling by the norm nowadays. Life doesn’t have to be that way. When was the last time that you decompressed completely, felt relaxed and refreshed with total enjoyment? Would you do that more often if you have the time? What if there are simple concepts and methods that you can learn, practice, and build on, to feeling calm, relaxed and anew, wherever and whenever you need? And, at the same time, enabling your surroundings to be a better place to live - because you are better! Yes, this is all very doable and completely dependent on the decisions you make and the efforts you put in through time into something very meaningful and worthwhile, called Chan Meditation.

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.
