with Shokuchi Deirdre Carrigan and Ingen Breen
September 10-13, 2015 (Thursday-Sunday)

Experience the joy and wonder of balancing your body and mind in the exquisite setting of Tassajara.

Explore the core of both traditions, discovering how they support and complement each other, and how they bring our lives into a deeper, fuller, and richer communication with reality. Alternating between sitting meditation and yoga asana, we come to appreciate how the practices are both different and the same, not two and not one. A full schedule of Zen and yoga sessions is offered, providing the opportunity to experience an intensive retreat. Participation is flexible, however, and you are free to take time out to walk, swim, bathe, and enjoy Tassajara.

Retreat fee: $265 ($225/Member)

Please note that the retreat fee does not include accommodations. Retreats begin late afternoon on the indicated start date and end in the morning on the indicated end date. Visit the Rooms & Rates section and determine your preferred accommodations before making your reservations request online.
