Retreats

Retreats offer a rare occasion to deepen one's Chan practice and commitment to the path. Many experiences arise in retreats that would normally not surface in daily individual or weekly group practice.

Each sitting during a retreat is 30 minutes, punctuated by short periods of mindful yoga or walking meditation. There is also mindful work practice, which is a way for retreatants to integrate their practice to daily situations. Retreatants also get an opportunity to speak one on one with Guo Gu in personal interview. For a sample 1-day retreat schedule, click on the link below.
