Poems, Stories & Koans and Meditations about the Journey of Awakening.
Journeys are exciting and, since we are always in motion, they are also the only thing we ever do. Movement itself is a practice. When I hear the rain, or an owl call, the moment lasts forever and is always new, it widens like a ripple in a pond.
We enter the moment utterly, and then the journey unfolds by itself. We can’t be living the wrong life so the place we are is the right one. The journey is a sacred progression, a pilgrimage.
Join us to investigate and celebrate the pilgrimage of this one life.
This retreat will have meditation, teachings, walking meditation and conversation as practice.
