Finding Sanctuary is an audio retreat that integrates the Dharma teachings of finding home within and the impact that atrocities, within one’s homeland and lineage, have on accessing a sense of belonging.
8 HOURS OF RECORDINGS TO KEEP FOR LIFE! CREATE YOUR OWN RETREAT. INVITE A FRIEND OR TWO TO JOIN YOU.
This audio retreat of eight recordings highlights the teachings found in the book Sanctuary: A Meditation on Home, Homelessness, and Belonging written by Zenju Earthlyn Manuel and published in 2018 through Wisdom Publications. The retreat includes 8 sessions 60 minutes long including a total of 4 hours of meditation spread out in 10 minute intervals PLUS new updated teachings that are not in the book.
There is also a presentation of poetry from Basho, Rengetsu, a Buddhist nun and offerings from Toni Morrison, Zora Neale Hurston, and Mary Oliver. There are songs including a song to Yemaya, African Orisha of the ocean and a chant to Prajnaparamita, Buddhist mother of all beings.
Plus you can send Zenju Sensei questions and comments via email while you are on your retreat.
Arrange your retreat in a way that works for you: Take a day off and do an 8 hour intensive one day retreat, or two 4 hour retreats, or do 8 mornings, or 8 evenings, once a week on Sunday morning for 8 weeks, whichever works for you. This is a self-spaced retreat, meaning you can access the retreat at any time for the rest of your life.
“We are because we belong,” Bishop Desmond Tutu. We are connected. Physics has proven it but the indigenous people and sages of old have been teaching it for 10,000 years. When will we live it?
