“Everything is perfect just as it is. And there is plenty of room for improvement.” -Suzuki Roshi

The title of this daylong retreat may sound deluded or even dangerously complacent, given the sudden scale of the current virus situation, as well as our ecological emergency, the geo-political horror-show and gross economic and social inequality are all crying out for care, attention and radical transformation.

But during this program, we will explore how to respond skillfully and actively to the ‘cries of the world’ while also discovering and resting in the realization that our true nature is free and unobstructed in its essence, and has always been so.

This daylong retreat is open to practitioners of all levels.

Registration: Updated pricing and times due to new online format
