Breakthrough to Zen Retreat – Online

24th March 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 27th March 2022 @ 2:00 pm

Event Navigation

The three-day (64hr) retreat format is based on the “group sanzen” format developed by Shinzan Roshi, together with the dyad work of American teacher, 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.

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.

Things to think about before you commit:
Unlike for our residential retreats, in these online retreats the onus will necessarily be on you to create a suitable retreat environment. You will be asked to maintain silence for the duration of the retreat – including at night time. This means having no unnecessary interactions with anyone outside the retreat group (including your partner/family). You’ll need to think about how to make a distraction-free space for the duration of the retreat, putting aside your normal responsibilities, making sure you’re in a comfortable space and have easy access to suitable food and a good internet connection. You may want to think about putting the money you would normally spend on travelling to the retreat and on accommodation towards your food supplies. Some people have already decided to rent an AirBnB apartment specifically for the retreat.

If you’re new to this retreat-style, or are unfamiliar with video conferencing and the Zoom platform, we will ask you to attend an orientation session with one of our more experienced members before the retreat starts. We’ll organise that once you’ve signed up.

If you have any questions or are unsure about anything, please get in touch.
