Southern Virginia Retreat May 22-June 5 2021

Email Tom Kreutzer to sign up.

Buddha
Zen Master Pohwa, Sunim will be leading a 14 day retreat in Clarksville, Virginia (south central VA) from May 22-June 5, 2021. Please mark your calendars if you are interested. It will be possible to attend for a few days or all 14, but more is always better because the power of a retreat is cumulative.
The sitting meditation periods will be 40 minutes followed by a 10 minute walking meditation. The tentative schedule will be:

5:00 AM wake up bell
5:30-7:00 sit two periods
7:00-9:00 breakfast
9:00-11:20 sit three periods
11:30-12:30 lunch
12:30-1:00 work period
1:00-4:00 rest & free time
4:00-5:30 sit two periods
5:30-7:30 dinner
7:30-9:00 sit two periods
9:00 bed


Master Pohwa
Master Pohwa will give daily koan interviews to those who wish. He will often alter the afternoon schedule and take everyone on a hike or a boat ride and have meditation outside. In addition to his Tuesday night Dharma Talks (http://www.worldzen.org/dharmatalk01.php ) Master Pohwa may give talks during a meditation period or after meals.
For those of you who have been on previous lake retreats, take heart. We have a new lake house that has 2-1/2 baths instead of one.
The suggested donation for groceries, and toilet paper is $5.00/day for students up to $20/day for big spenders. There will be a separate donation box for contributions to Sunim.
A two week retreat with a true Zen Master is a rare opportunity; please don't miss it.
