If we are open to embracing the surprises as they arise, then there will be inconceivable joy. If we fuss and fume and say, “That isn’t what I expected,” then there will be inconceivable misery. Just to welcome your life as it arrives moment after moment, to meet it as fully as you can, being as open to it as you can, being as ready for whatever arises as you can, being as ready for whatever arises as you can and meeting it wholeheartedly, this is renunciation — this is leaving behind all of your preferences, all of your ideas and notions and schemes. Just meeting life as it is. – Zenkei Blanche Hartman
This retreat highlights the teachings of Zenkei Blanche Hartman from her book Seeds For A Boundless Life, compiled and edited by Zenju Earthlyn Manuel and published in 2015. Here, we will share her words as a voice coming from her extensive Zen training of silence and stillness. We will meditate and send the words back into the silence.
This is a self-spaced retreat, meaning you can stop and listen at any time. Hopefully, it is a time you are ready to be still and present with your breath. offering is sliding scale – $60, $80, $100
