This three and a half day silent retreat is in support of our practice that recognizes awakening in the midst of everyday life, coming home to one’s true heart. The retreat will allow for part time attendance, allowing participants to take care of life’s responsibilities and return to the retreat container. Participants must indicate ahead of time, and honor their intended schedule to the Shuso.
This “Coming Home” sesshin will culminate on Sunday with a Zaike Tokudo ceremony during which several members will formally enter the official lineage of Dharma Cloud and commit to taking care of this sangha. Please come to support and witness their vows. While we engage the ritual Zen activities of zazen, walking meditation, mindful work and eating, teachings will be offered on the spiritual meaning of “home coming” for each of us on a path of practice.
Detailed schedule TBA.
