Workshops & Retreats 2018

Three-night Green Gulch Retreat

February 22 – 25, 2018
4pm Thursday – 1pm Sunday

Green Gulch Farm sponsors retreats with me and my zen co-teachers twice a year and it is my great joy and privilege to offer them. Many people frequently return, and new faces arrive each time as well.

In a three-night retreat, with two full days for practice and half a day on either side, we offer you an opportunity to enter deeply into a slower, more reflective environment than perhaps your home and work environments provide. And also into the beauty of Green Gulch Farm and environs. A chance to allow what is deepest inside you to be revealed and experienced.

Sessions of our zen and yoga practices combine to create a unique experience each time. In my particular approach to yoga we sometimes work intensely and we often spend time in poses in order to explore them deeply, but I do not teach vinyasa flow nor is it meant to be a “yoga workout.” We sometimes will practice simple Qigong movements as warm-ups. Central Abbess Linda Cutts will lead the periods of zazen, dharma talks and discussions.

Rediscovering Our True Balance: Michigan Yoga Association, Kalamazoo
April 13-15, 2018
6:00pm Friday – 2pm Sunday

This three-day workshop will include an exploration of the many layers of what we like to call the self. We’ll cultivate concentration and sensitivity through devotion to detail within the Hatha Yoga practices, including breath and energy flows in asana, pranayama and meditation. The word devotion hints at the intention to explore the entire “inner” being as well as the structure in which we are embedded.

Please go the Michigan Yoga Association website for a full description and registration information.
