3 day Intensive Zen retreat in Oregon, USA

27 September @ 6:00 pm - 30 September @ 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

The three-day (64 hour) retreat format is based on Daizan Roshi’s 3-Day Zen Intensives. These are grounded in the “group sanzen” format developed by Shinzan Roshi, together with the dyad work of Charles Berner. This creates a uniquely powerful combination. This format is suitable for those with no prior meditation experience, but can also be very powerful for those who have an on-going or developing practice. These retreats are designed specifically for you to find out your true nature – to find out who you really are (enlightenment or kensho in Japanese).

This format is suitable for those with no prior meditation experience, but can also be very powerful for those who have an on-going or developing practice. Please plan to come for the entire retreat.

We are happy to announce that Daizan Roshi, a central teacher of ours in the Zenways lineage, will be leading this retreat. This is an incredible and rare opportunity.

We do not charge a fixed amount for these retreats, and instead would suggest a donation of between £100 and £250, depending on your means.

…filled with peaceful energy, and knowing it’s not just within me but everywhere. Heart open in every direction.

During the third day I felt a breakthrough into a new zone. Working with my koan helped me gradually shift my sense of self from my head to my heart, and my sense of being from definitional to embracing and inclusive of other people…

[I feel] gratitude for the privilege of being here in this process. Deep connection with Self and other people.

One of the most important events of my life.
