Zen and Yoga Retreat

[Meeting Face to Face Finding True Intimacy in the Practice of Zen]

 

Category: Yoga & Zen Meditation  /   Teacher: Rev. Shinchi Linda Galijan & Rev. Zenshin Greg Fain, Vivi Letsou

 

Fully engaging body and mind through Zen meditation and Abhaya yoga, we will become deeply intimate with our own experience, welcoming whatever presents itself in our awareness. Coming home to our own true being, we will explore what it takes to truly allow ourselves to be seen by another, and how we can see another human being, just as they are. Through inquiry into the truth of interdependence between all people and all beings, we will discover and express the profound meaning of “Only a Buddha, together with a Buddha.”

The entire universe is the true human body. The entire universe is the gate of liberation. From Only a Buddha and a Buddha, by Zen Master Dōgen
