Zen and Yoga: The Mind of Winter—A Retreat at the Solstice, GGF 12/20

with Shokuchi Deirdre Carrigan
in the Wheelwright Center

Saturday, December 20, 2014
9 am - 5:30 pm

The word solstice derives from the Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still, to stop). At the solstices, the seasonal movement of the Sun's path (as seen from the perspective of Earth) comes to a stop before reversing direction. Winter solstice means the Sun stands still in winter.

In this one-day retreat from the busy business of the winter holiday season, we will stop, and come together to practice stillness in the traditions of Zen Buddhism and Yoga. In the warm enclosure of our retreat room, we will sit zazen, practice yoga asana and pranayama, reflect on the year that has been and our intention for the year to come, and end our day together by taking a quiet walk in the Green Gulch winter garden to watch the setting sun.

All levels of practitioners are welcome.
