Sanshin's Women's Retreat is designed to appeal to both beginners in Zen practice and those with some experience. The retreat includes instruction in sitting (zazen) and walking (kinhin) practice if needed, periods of zazen and kinhin, brief dharma talks, Q&A and discussion, vegetarian meals, and body practice designed to support zazen practice. It provides a variety of resources that participants can take in and use in establishing and maintaining their practice. READ MORE
