Join us online for a day of practice as we celebrate the start of Spring. Pushing on into the Spring Training period after our kickoff with our Winter Retreat we strive to keep up the pressure. We will continue to ramp up our practice as we head into the May Training month. For this day we will follow our spring retreat schedule, which allows for a bit more samu time as the demands of the grounds in the spring are unrelenting. We will continue our examinations of the three essentials of Zen (Chan) Practice: Root of Great Confidence, Fury of Great Determination and Great Apprehension and Uncertainty. We will use Torei Enji’s Discourse on the Inexhaustible Lamp of the Zen School and the Chan Whip Anthology by Jeffery Broughton as our primary texts.
