Event description

Description

Zen mind is the beginner's mind.

Our "original mind" includes everything within itself. It is always rich and sufficient within itself.

If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything.In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities; in the expert's mind there are few.


Typically the day includes periods of sitting and walking meditation, a dharma talk, and guidance on meditation provided by the teacher and a Q&A session at the end of the day.

Lunch: We also ask you to bring a vegetarian dish without onion, garic, leek to contribute to a shared lunch, which is held together and in silence. Cutlery and plates are available at the venue.

Dana: Dana translates as generosity, in this spirit the teachers offer these teachings for free.

As students we are also given the opportunity to practice generosity by offering financial contributions to the teachers. The livelihood of most teachers depends wholly on the generosity and voluntary contributions from retreatants who value their guidance and wish to support the ongoing teachings of the Dharma.

All the retreats are suitable for beginners as well as those with experience of meditation practice.

This day is lead by Jinho Shi, a Buddhist Nun from Taiwan.

With Metta blessings to you!

Sr. Jinho
