Silver Dragons Sesshin: A Meditation Retreat for People over 60

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 - 5:00 pm to Sunday, April 15, 2018 - 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 sesshin 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 using poetry as the medium of exchange
