UPCOMING EVENTS

ZEN MIND IN THE BARDOS

May 17-19, 2019, Düsseldorf, Germany 

 

We are pleased to announce “Zen Mind in the Bardos,” a workshop by Daniel Doen Silberberg, Roshi being held in Düsseldorf, Germany May 17-19, 2019. In this workshop Roshi will explore the various states of existence, or “Bardos” that appear as both gateways and barriers on the path of liberation. This workshop will focus on how to navigate these gateways and barriers to create freedom and clarity in our daily life.

Roshi will give a public talk on Friday, May, 17, 2019, followed by a two day workshop on Saturday, May 18, and Sunday, May 19. This will be a great opportunity for the Lost Coin European and American sanghas to spend time and to practice together.

In preparation for “The Zen Mind in the Bardos” workshop taking place in Düsseldorf, Germany May 17-19, 2019 we have posted a teisho given by Daniel Doen Silberberg, Roshi on February 18, 2019 at a San Francisco class meeting. In the video Roshi talks about the upcoming workshop and touches upon some of the areas of practice that will be featured. Please enjoy the video to whet your interest if you are attending the retreat, or if you are unable to join us. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO

BEYOND WORDS AND LETTERS

 July 19, 20, 21, 2019, Salt lake City, Utah

 

Beyond Words and Letters harkens back to the “traditional” retreats (Sesshins) that Doen Roshi  attended when he was training at the monastery.

“If you use your mind to study reality, you won’t understand your mind or reality.  If you study reality without using your mind, you will understand both.”  Boddhidharma circa 6th century A.D. To enter this mind-less state we will use the traditional vehicles of zazen, focused spirit and silence.

There will be dokusan (interview with Roshi), blocks of zazen (sitting), kinhin (walking meditation), rest and body practice, and teisho (formal talks) by Roshi.  This retreat will also begin a three–month Ango (an intensive training period) which will end in October at our Annual Gathering of the Clan Retreat.
