Fall Retreat on Zoom – Finding Cold Mountain

October 15 - October 18

$90

In the 9th century Hanshan left civilization and made his way to Cold Mountain, where he spent years wandering, meditating, and writing poems. On Cold Mountain he learned to lose himself and to be himself. We all have a Cold Mountain in us. How can we find it? How can it help us?

From Hanshan:
I’m on the trail to Cold Mountain.
Cold Mountain trail never ends.
Long clefts thick with rock and stones,
Wide streams buried in dense grass.
Slippery moss, but there’s been no rain,
Pine trees sigh, but there’s no wind.
Who can leap the world’s net,
Sit here in the white clouds with me?
