Chinese Zen Ancestors
led by Abiding Abbess Furyu Schroeder
February 10 - April 7, 2015
To this day a visitor to South Peak Temple in Hunan Province will see a sign inscribed over the main gate announcing that one is entering an ancestor temple of the Soto Zen School (Cao-Dong). During this practice period we will honor the teachings of our Soto Zen Ancestors in China, beginning with the arrival of Bodhidharma from the West.
Practice period offers an excellent opportunity for beginning and more experienced students to join an intense period of residential practice, including daily zazen, lectures, classes, work, and close contact with teachers. We ask participants to commit to the entire period. Practice period includes two one-day sittings and concludes with a seven-day sesshin.
