Our upcoming Spring weekend meditation retreat will be led by visiting teacher, Jogen Salzberg of Great Vow Zen Monastery in Oregon. This will be our third residential retreat guided by Jogen, who is a highly skilled and masterful meditation teacher. We will begin on Thursday, March 5th in the evening and close on Sunday morning, March 8th (the first weekend of Emory's Spring Break). During the retreat, Jogen will lead meditation sessions, give a talk about meditation practice, and offer one-on-one discussions with retreatants. We will observe silence for the majority of the weekend in order to deepen our practice. Vegetarian/Vegan meals and lodging provided. We look forward to this unique opportunity to deepen our meditation practice with the support of an expert teacher and a group of fellow meditators! Please email Amanda Brown or Jordan Kohn with any questions or concerns.
