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. Our practice allows us to take a break from stories, so that we can see ourselves and others more clearly.
