As we mature and enter into the last phases of life, our bodies and stamina may not be able to maintain a full sesshin schedule. We may still have the aspiration to dive deeply into a zen retreat and reap the benefits of extended practice.
The Silver Dragon Sesshin is designed exclusively for that purpose for those over 60 years of age. We can accommodate most people with our modified schedule. Early morning and late night sitting will be optional. We encourage taking care of our bodies while remaining totally engaged in the retreat.
Durning this retreat we will look at aging, life and death through the lens of where are we today, how to continue to express gratitude and appreciation, and exploreing our vows to go forth with a clear heart/mind.
This retreat will be primarily silent with some small group discussion along with journaling and other creative arts to tap into the rivers that flow both deep and shallow throughout our lives.
Please join us for in this creative and wise time in our lives; a time when we can drop our fears, dreams, images, and judgments and fully be our true Silver Dragon selves.
