Big Heart In-Person Retreats
with Genpo Roshi
Big Heart Retreats are open to the public. No previous Zen experience is necessary although it is helpful. All reservations and registration are handled individually. Please contact Bruce here.
The donation for the teacher and teachings for these retreats is $8,000 per person.
The retreat is conducted In-Person at a large beachfront house on Manini Bay in the town of Captain Cook on the Big Island of Hawaii. Participants fly in and out of Kona-Kailua Airport (KOA). Typically participants arrive at least one day before the retreat begins. Local transportation, airport pick up and drop-off, will be provided. During the registration process we will discuss your needs and schedule in detail.
There are three private bedrooms with private baths available at the retreat house. Two have King Beds and one has a Queen bed. These are available on a first come / first serve basis. The rooms are available for 6 nights starting the night before the retreat begins. Check out is by noon on the day after the retreat. The room rental to stay at the retreat house for 6 nights is $1,650 including taxes and fees.
If these rooms are booked, or if you prefer to stay nearby, we can recommend several options.
All meals are included in the basic retreat fee. All participants, whether on site at the retreat house or staying in a nearby hotel will be provided 3 meals a day and snacks as part of the retreat at no extra cost. We have an onsite chef who will take care to accommodate your dietary restrictions and preferences. During the registration process we will discuss your needs in detail.
