Zen Meditation Retreat with Genjo Marinello Osho

Saturday, April 23 9:00 – 3:30 pm. This will be a hybrid retreat with 10 people in-person and others joining online via Zoom. The retreat will be hosted by the Walla Walla Dharma Sangha (WWDS) and held in Walla Walla. All in-person slots are full. Registration is now open for participation in the retreat via Zoom, please register by emailing Janaki Howard. Cost of the retreat is $ 10 plus donation to Genjo.  The retreat is suitable for beginning and more experienced practitioners.
The retreat will explore the The First Great Vow of Zen, which is “However innumerable all beings are, we vow to care for them all.” In the face of so much war, injustice, and suffering, how can we keep a caring heart that is ready and willing to do what needs to be done.? How do we “walk the talk”? How do we care for our own hearts and for others? The practice of Zen allows us to commune with something deeper and brings steadiness in the midst of turmoil.
Genjo will also offer a free talk on Friday evening, April 22 at 7:30 pm through the Zoom format. Link to be shared a week before the talk.
Genjo is the Abbot of Chobo-Ji Zen Center in Seattle. He has led retreats in the Walla Walla area for over 30 years. Genjo guides Zen centers in seven locations in the U.S. and also Canada and Germany. For more information about Genjo, see:   https://choboji.org/history
