Winter Retreat: "Awakening To True Nature," December 8-9-10.

This year's retreat will be held at the Epworth Retreat Center, located at beautiful Camp Asbury in Hiram.  The retreat will begin the evening of Bodhi Day, December 8th, and will conclude on Sunday afternoon, December 10th.

A retreat is a time of energetic practice which can assist us in penetrating the "Great Matter," the direct knowledge of who we truly are.  Joining in Zen practice with others helps us to intensify our practice, setting the stage for even deeper realization.

FEE: $100 which includes 2 nights lodging and all meals.  Although we will accept fees up until the Monday before the retreat (December 4th), it would help our retreat planning greatly if you would let us know ahead of time that you are going to attend (a 50% deposit is customary).  This helps us with meal planning, logistics, etc.  Limited financial assistance is available for those who would like to attend.
