Typical Zen retreats are designed for intense and deep meditation experiences. Each day will include indoor and outdoor zazen (seated meditation), kinhin (group walking meditation), deep abdominal chanting, a talk at the interface of Zen and Ecodharma teachings, rest periods, samu (silent work periods to prepare food) and dokusan (private interview with the teacher). We will have time in the afternoons for personal extended time in nature. Food preparation will be led by brilliant chef and Zen practitioner Imtiaz Rangwala and we will always have vegan and gluten-free options. On last two days, we will have optional peer-led Ecodharma practices & discussions. For detailed schedule of first five days, please visit this page.
Two day attendance You can join the group on 3rd or 5th May. Please don’t enter the meditation hall during indoor sits; entire building reverberates when someone walks in. The lodge might be locked when we are outdoors.
Legal waiver Please read this page before arriving. Everyone will need to sign it when they arrive.
