with Shosan Victoria Austin
Sunday, September 22, 2013
10 am - 4 pm
Wheelwright Center at Green Gulch
This day-long retreat will include integrative instruction in both Zen and Yoga. Our focus will be on how to illuminate the physical, physiological and spiritual practice of the Four Divine Abidings, an ancient Buddhist teaching on how to live in one's own body and mind as a temple. We will explore how each of the four (friendliness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity) can be cultivated and nourished through the body, and how the four abidings respond by turning body and mind into a field of blessings.
Participants of all ages and abilities are welcome.
$80; $72 current SFZC members; $64 limited income. A delicious organic vegetarian lunch in the Green Gulch dining room is included. Some partial scholarships available; see About Registration, Scholarships, and Cancellations
