A student asked Baoshou Zhao, “When everything comes forward and overwhelms you, what do you do?”

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.

Retreat Leader

This retreat is led by Roshi Guy Gaudry, Director of the London Zen Centre.

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 Robert Aitken and John Tarrant. Using meditation, koans, art, and a deep intimacy, Guy offers a warm and direct way of experiencing Zen and an awakened life.
