Restore and invigorate your mind and body through deep engagement with the practice of your choice. We invite you to join our renowned teachers to explore the variety of ways that Zen Buddhism and other spiritual traditions can inform and enrich your life. Whether you attend a yoga, cooking, or artistic retreat, when combined with the awareness cultivated through Zen meditation, your experience of one tradition is enriched by the other. Although there will be scheduled time for practice in the tradition you have chosen, all retreats include plenty of free time to enjoy the baths, hike, or simply rest and savor a cup of tea.
