Leonard Marcel Roshi will be coming to Bend again to lead our semi-annual weekend retreat. This will take place Oct. 6, 7-9 PM, and Oct. 7, 8-4:30 PM. This is an interfaith event with a Zen format but incorporating insights from both East and West. It is entirely silent except for chants and interviews with Leonard.
Friday evening consists of an introduction and an hour and a half of sitting. Saturday there are two talks by Leonard, morning and afternoon; interviews with Leonard, morning and afternoon; a short work period; a potluck vegetarian lunch; and about six hours of sitting meditation.
This is an opportunity for longer meditation and for teachings. Suggested donation is $50. If interested, contact Denise asap, as space is limited; email@example.com.
