What is Zazen Anyway?
A Daylong Retreat
With Abbess Fu Schroeder
May 9, 2015
9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Zazen is the heart of Zen meditation. Simply translated, Zazen means "Seated Meditation" yet there is much more to Zen practice than sitting on a cushion. We invite you to come spend a day of practice with Fu Schroeder, an Abbess from the San Francisco Zen Center, to explore the practice of Zazen for yourself.
The day will consist of sitting and walking meditation, a Dharma talk by Abbess Fu Schroeder and an opportunity for discussion following the talk.
Having begun Buddhist practice at the San Francisco Zen Center in 1979, Furyu Schroeder has served in most of the monastic positions during her years of residency including Head Cook, Director Vice-President and currently Abiding Abbess of Green Gulch Farm. She raised her daughter, Sabrina, at Green Gulch with co-parent Dr. Grace Dammann. Their family is documented in the recently released film, States of Grace.
Venue: Retreat will be held at Durango Dharma Center, 208 CR 250, at the intersection of 32nd Street and CR 250 (East Animas Rd).
Cost: $80.00 - $40.00 sliding scale. Scholarships available by contacting Terry Leonard.
Benefit: Fees support the Durango Dharma Center; there will be an opportunity to practice Dana (generosity) for the teacher at the end of the retreat.
