Silver Dragons: Everyone knows what a dragon looks like - a Sesshin for people over 60

Wednesday, April 08, 2020 - 5:00 pm to Sunday, April 12, 2020 - 1:00 pm

I am of the nature to grow old.
There is no way to escape growing old.

I am of the nature to have ill-health.
There is no way to escape having ill-health.

I am of the nature to die.
There is no way to escape death.

As we age, our Buddhist and life practice differ in significant ways from the practice of younger people. This seshin for people over the age of 60 provides a relaxed schedule and environment to consider the teachings and wisdom of our elder life. There will be time for deep meditation, dharma talks, interview, oryoki as well as sleep and dreams. And, this year we will talk together about death during a workshop-like group activity called Death Cafe. 

A $50 non-refundable deposit holds your place; balance is due on arrival.
