Retreat notes: Brilliant sun and fly buzz in Coimbra

By | 2015-10-03T16:48:18+01:00 octobre 27th, 2013|La pratique Zen|

Here I am on retreat in Portugal, amid ribbons of highways, under brilliant sun overlooking Coimbra. Great sitting all day altogether. Someone said this morning he was happy to be here and thanked me for coming. I told him the same thing. Meanwhile, a fly has been hanging around in my room since Friday night. [...]

What is a retreat? and other questions

By | 2017-04-04T06:58:15+01:00 avril 14th, 2013|La pratique Zen|

Retreat notes, VI (One infinite territory)

By | 2017-04-04T06:58:18+01:00 février 19th, 2011|La pratique Zen|

Rain has been coming down all day, off and on, laced with a chilling edge. Late afternoon, and it's hard to imagine that it's warm and sunny somewhere, or snow-bound, or deep, dark night. Of course it is, however, and of course I can't "know" it unless I'm there. What does it mean to be [...]

Retreat notes, V (Open and connected)

Our "fifth day" is coming to an end for me here in Montreuil. We had our usual evening sitting at the Red Earth Centre and much lively discussion.
