“In the spring, cherry blossoms,
In the summer the cuckoo,
In autumn the moon, and
In winter the snow, clear, cold”
Stillness Speaks is very pleased to announce an upcoming retreat focused on Zen Master Dogen. We will co-sponsor this event with Mountain Cloud Zen Center.
Kaz Tanahashi, renowned Dogen scholar, translator, (and calligrapher) will co-host with Henry Shukman (guiding teacher of Mountain Cloud Zen Center), and possibly one other Zen teacher …
The event is in July 2017.
UPDATE May 2017: Event date has changed … a post with the new date will be forthcoming …
More details coming soon here on our website … and in subsequent newsletters … so stay tuned.
