  One Day Zen Retreat

Since before anyone remembers
it’s been clear
shining l
ike silver
though the moonlight suffuses it
and the wind ruffles it
no trace of either remains
Now I wouldn’t dare 
to explain the secret
of the stream bed

but I can tell you 
that the blue dragon 
is coiled there*

A Zen koan and meditation retreat is a gentle way to settle into the stillness that runs beneath the changing seasons. Join us for this one day retreat, there will be meditation and koans, interviews with the teacher, Dharma talks and discussion, music and lots of quiet warmth. No experience is required and the retreat is open to everyone.

This retreat is led by Roshi Guy Gaudry. After successfully training in Zen in the classical manner for 20 years Guy went on to study koans, after which he received Dharma Transmission in the Zen line of John Tarrant. Using meditation, koans, art, and a deep intimacy, Guy creates a modern, no nonsense way to step into a more direct way of experiencing your life.
