Three day September Chan Retreat
An upcoming three day Chan retreat:
Hope your summer is going well. The Hermitage, a retreat centre on Denman Island, has made available their space for the 2nd weekend in September for a 3 day Chan retreat, the 10th, 11th, 12th with participant arrival on Thursday night. There are 6 cabins and a tenting site.
Check out the Hermitage at http://www.dharmafellowship.org/
Let me know ASAP if this commitment to your practice has a pull on you.
Check out Brad Warner. He is a zen teacher with a website at http://hardcorezen.blogspot.com and has written Zen Wrapped in Karma Dipped in Chocolate,available at the Courtenay library. Brad Warner "shatters expectations, revealing that Buddhism isn't some esoteric pie-in-the-sky ultimate solution but an exceptionally practical way to deal with whatever life dishes out." Warner is definitely not what one would expect from a Zen teacher.
