Practice of Attention: An Interlude from the Connected World

Immerse yourself fully in this tech-free retreat at Bodhi Manda, a Rinzai Zen meditation retreat center. We’ll come together for 5 days to remove all digital distractions and learn zazen (sitting meditation), kinhin (walking meditation), and samu (work meditation). 

In addition to Zen practice and studies, we’ll offer hands-on activities to strengthen the awareness we establish through meditation including yoga, cooking/baking, gardening, art, and Kyūdō, Zen archery. Daily use of our natural hot springs will also be available. Each participant will be invited to leave any and all digital devices in the office when they arrive for a distraction free experience.
