Yoga and Zen: Seeing into the Heart

Jan 15 - 20, 2017 Begins in 5 months
with Tias Little & Henry Shukman

One minute of sitting, one inch of Buddha
Like lightning all thoughts come and go.
Just once see into your mind-depths:
Nothing else has ever been.
– Manzan
The alchemy of yoga and zen is deep and powerful. Yoga offers incomparable insight into the body-mind connection, while Zen opens up the way to see through the body and mind entirely to reveal our original nature. In this retreat, we explore the conjunction of these two magnificent traditions, in order to become more intimate with the bare fact of being.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
