“So let me ask you all: What has so far been the matter with you? What do you lack? If I tell you that nothing whatsoever is the matter, then I’ve already buried you; you yourself must arrive at that realization! …one of these days something will be very much the matter!” – YunmenI
The Urban Retreat format is a user friendly, easily approachable way of participating in a meditation retreat.
Starting at 9:30 we will have three 25 minute periods of meditation with a break in between each.
Then we will explore the ‘random meditation’ of having tea and conversation together before comparing field notes
about our experience with the koan.
We will have a two hour break for lunch, bring your own or explore one of the fine restaurants in Rockridge and in the afternoon we will meditate, hang out with another
koan and have a conversation about our experience, ending at 5:00 pm.
The retreat will be limited to 16 people to preserve an intimate atmosphere for sharing
deeply what arises in meditation.
Fee: $65.members & $85.non-members
