8:30 – 5:30 – Spring Day Sit – The Stories We Tell
June 17 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm$25 – $60
Join us for our day long retreat in the Rinzai tradition: seated and walking meditation, chanting, qigong and a dharma talk. Our teacher will be our Abbot, Koshin Chris Cain, who will discuss the stories we tell.
We humans are a story-making species. We need stories, but if we take them as fact, they can trap and limit us. “I’m a failure” “She’s a success” “He’s no good” “I’m not enough” Our practice teaches us to take a break from stories, so that we can see ourselves and others more clearly.
The retreat is offered in person and on Zoom.
In person: A simple vegetarian lunch will be provided. Let the registrar know about food sensitivities. In person capacity is 20. Registration closes on June 15 at 1pm.
