Beginning this Sunday March 22nd through Saturday March 28th, I am offering a 7-day virtual retreat at no charge while we are all in self-quarantine at home. You are all welcome to join if you wish.
I will lead a Zoom video conference each day from 11:00 am -12:15 pm MT (Boulder, CO, USA), which will include sharing with you and an opportunity for you to ask questions.
The video conference can accommodate up to 500 people, and if you wish to participate you will need to sign up so we can send you conference access information. To register contact Mary Ellen at firstname.lastname@example.org before noon on Friday, March 20.
During this week I will be sitting throughout the day and night, and invite you to join me in spirit by sitting on your own when you can. For those who can join in the video conference, we will begin by chanting the Enmei Jukku Kannon Gyo together. (Registrants will receive the text along with conference access information.) The retreat will end at the conclusion of the video conference, Saturday, March 28th at 12:15 pm MT.
The daily video conferences will be recorded, so if more than 500 people register, or if you cannot participate at those hours, you can still hear the full event. All those who register will receive an email with instructions for accessing the recordings when they are available.
At this time we have the opportunity to sit and come together in retreat. The planet is in a realignment period when our reduced carbon footprint will hopefully help heal our Mother Earth and protect many species, including humans. Many of us may experience great loss during this next period of our lives and may need love and support from one another. This is an attempt to offer some of that to all of you.
