Tim Burkett: Retreat at Hokyoji Zen Practice Community, Eitzen MNSeptember 19-24, 2017 | Hokyoji Zen, Minnesota
The fall retreat at Hokyoji, in the bluff country of southeastern Minnesota, is an opportunity to practice surrounded by nature, far from the distractions of city life. We alternate sitting and walking meditation throughout the day, along with daily dharma talks, one-to-one meetings with the teachers, vegetarian meals, a work period, and outdoor group meditation walks. Bring camping gear or sleep in dorm-like accommodations. We will need at least 7 full-retreat participants to hold the retreat at Hokyoji.
