In our world of busy-ness, of more/faster/better, this retreat offers time to stop, reflect, and renew. Together we will follow a gentle schedule of sitting and walking meditation, interspersed with time to get to know and learn from each other. The Zen tradition offers a deep, rich, wise, and often humorous tapestry of stories and practices that can be studied and utilized in our work and daily lives — to foster self-awareness, connectivity in relationships, and bring our lives alive in fresh and important ways. During this experiential workshop, we will practice mindfulness, and unpack and apply Zen teachings including generosity, fearlessness, and patience. We will explore how these practices and stories can open pathways to our own aliveness and our ability to authentically traverse the terrain of our lives.
