Spring Retreat Online – Faith on the Path: Reliance on Self and Other

April 16 - April 19

With most of the world sheltering in place and looking-out towards uncertainty we are excited to offer an accessible way to find interior quiet by taking refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha with our online retreat.

The retreat is modeled on formal retreats in the Rinzai tradition which include seated and walking meditation, Qi Gong, chanting, dharma talks and optional interviews with teachers. For this retreat Genko Kathy Blackman will be discussing, “Faith on the Path: Reliance on Self and Other.”

The schedule for this online retreat is below. People are invited to participate as much or as little as they wish.  If you are joining us from the Norway sangha or from some other time zone, or need to attend the retreat part-time for some other reason, that’s fine.  All participants are asked to register. And you of course understand that the more committed you are to doing a deep dive the more significant your experience will be. Do your best to keep silence through the whole day. Please take at least one meal in silence. If you can manage all three, wonderful.

Registration amounts are suggested. Members $25 a day. Non-members $30 a day. Please pay what you can. There is a separate unbounded DONATE button below the Buy Now registration button. If you have questions please contact registrar@pszc.org
