FRAGMENTS OF AN UNKNOWN TEACHING:
THE FOURTH WAY AND LOST COIN ZEN Workshop
July 11th & 12th, 2015 | Salt Lake City, Utah at The Episcopal Church Center of Utah
Before he was a Zen practitioner, Doen Roshi spent years involved with Gurdjieff groups and the Fourth Way teaching.
Lost Coin, founded by Doen, embodies a modern Zen which centers on daily life rather than monasticism and includes the influence of the Fourth Way teachings.
We are excited to present this workshop which will include periods of meditation and talks and Fourth Way practices from the teachings of George Gurdjieff and P.D. Ouspensky. We will take a closer look at how Lost Coin uses Fourth Way ideas in concert with traditional Zen practice.
Join us at the ECCU Wasatch Conference Center beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday January 11 and ending around noon on Sunday, January 12, 2015 for this venture into Zen and the Fourth Way.
Register with Rebecca @longokura.com.

THE TRAVELER’S WAY
Lost Coin’s Annual Gathering of the Clan and Retreat
August 25th – August 30th, 2015 | San Rafael, Santa Sabina Center
The Traveler’s Way is the way of reality.
The Way is derived from ancient and modern understandings of our journey through life.
We are travelers passing through.
Our ordinary understanding views impermanence and loss in a way that creates feelings of victimization and helplessness.
The traveler is neither a victim nor helpless and uses the realities of life and death to create freedom and power.
Join Doen Roshi and Lost Coin clan for 5 days of practice in this Way of liberation.
Our retreats are always more than the sum of their parts, so be ready for surprises and singular moments within the schedule of zazen (meditation), dokusan (private interview with Roshi), daily teisho (formal talks by Roshi), silent meals and body practice.
We will be at Santa Sabina Center in San Rafael again, so the atmosphere will be contemplative, aiding the internal silence that is the door to the Traveler’s Way.
Registration begins now.
