This 7-Day Retreat will be held at a retreat lodge in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado, surrounded by extraordinary landscape and mountain peaks and only forty-five minutes from Boulder, Colorado.

The daily schedule will consist of three hours of teaching, dokusan (personal interviews with Roshi) and seven hours of zazen daily. It will also include one hour of Qigong led by Master Michael Berger.

It has been seven years, since the retreat on the Island of Ameland in the Netherlands in 2011, that Roshi has led such a week-long retreat. You won’t want to miss this very special opportunity to deepen your Big Mind/Big Heart Zen practice.

Space and rooms are limited to only 25 people.

The retreat will begin at 3:00 pm Monday April 9th, and end at noon Sunday April 15th.

Early-bird discount available until March 1st.
