Friday, March 29, 4 pm - Sunday, March 31, noon
with Shokuchi Deirdre Carrigan
and Jeremy Levie
Experience the joy and wonder of balancing mind and body in this Zen and Yoga retreat amidst the deep quiet of Green Dragon Temple.
Explore the core of both traditions, discovering how they support and complement each other, as we bring our lives into a deeper, fuller and richer communication with reality. Alternating between sitting meditation and yoga asana, we come to appreciate how the practices are both different and the same, not two and not one. A full schedule of Zen and Yoga sessions is offered, providing the opportunity to experience an intensive retreat. Participation is flexible, however, and you are free to take time to walk about and enjoy the natural beauty of Green Gulch. Retreat fee:
$170, $153 current SFZC member, $136 limited income. Does not include accommodations.
$202; includes four meals in the dining room. Registration and Overnight Accommodations:
To register and to reserve accommodations, call our toll free number 888.743.9362 or our local number 415.475.9362.
