Three Good Things



April 22, 2012


Good Morning:


They say good things come in threes and right now there are three new, discrete offerings at Great Vow and Heart of Wisdom coming at the end of May and beginning of June. I encourage everyone to register right away for these one time uniques offerings. You can attend all three!  I have registered for sesshin and am seriously considering the other two. Please see listings at




Great Vow Zen Monastery’s 10th Anniversary will be commemorated with a special Memorial Sesshin.


May 21 - May 27, 2012.













The Painting Experience is a unique experience which is being hosted at Great Vow and lead by Stewart Cubley.  It is  an unprecedented journey into the wild territory of painting directly from intuition. It’s a leap beyond the predicted and expected - a venture into color, form and image where no rules apply.  


 May 30 through June 2, 201
