The Three Marks of Existence on the Path of Recovery, 5/20 – 5/24

Tassajara May 20, 2019 - May 24, 2019 Reserve Online

with Ryotan Cynthia Kear and Koshin Steven Tierney

May 20 – 24


A retreat for people in recovery.

In an unpredictable world full of suffering and joy, we realize that each of us experiences 3 marks of existence: impermanence, suffering, and no-self.  

People in recovery experience these marks on a journey requiring reflection, change, skillful interaction with each other and compassion.  

Suzuki Roshi taught “Just to be alive is enough.” In this retreat we will explore how the tools of lovingkindness (Metta) and the 12 Steps of Recovery, can enhance our opportunities to experience the joy of being alive and increase our stability and expand our capacity to be present with ourselves and our lives under all circumstances.
