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)

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

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. I noticed that I was much less tired than usual on Friday nights. Seems I'm energized by this retreat. Not surprising. We've all been delving into our [...]

Retreat notes, IV (Hearing pain)

Day 4 of our retreat, Thursday, another day at the office. There was time for a short morning sitting, a bit of "stillness practice," before leaving home, unlike yesterday. And then it was into the "movement practice" of the world and its array of daily motion. We think we know it so well! And yet... [...]

Retreat notes, III (Back to the roots)

By | 2015-10-03T16:44:21+01:00 février 16th, 2011|La pratique Zen|

Had to go to the office early this morning, so no sitting to start the day for me. Have to wait until tonight. Which is exactly how my practice has always been, since the very beginning. And which is how this "retreat in the heart of life" came to be: It was/is a direct result [...]

Retreat notes, II (Where we meet)

By | 2015-10-03T16:44:04+01:00 février 15th, 2011|La pratique Zen|

Second day of our great adventure into the heart of life. Sometimes I forget about it, forget that this is a retreat, only realizing that I've forgotten when I remember. And then suddenly as I put the key in my door upon returning from a lunch date, the "world" is beyond imagination and yet right [...]

Retreat notes, I (Borders)

So after sitting this morning and before sitting tonight, it's Monday, with it's usual routine of household tasks, meetings and appointments. And yet today, there's a difference: These activities are my contribution to the retreat that we are plunging into together. A fountain of gratitude gushed forth as I read all your words. With the [...]
