This retreat will be dedicated to the “Four Foundations of Mindfulness,” the fundamental Buddhist teaching for cultivating insight. The four foundations of mindfulness are very basic and profound Buddhist teachings. During these practice days we will study mindfulness through Buddhist texts, the practice of zazen (sitting meditation), kinhin (walking meditation), chanting services and one hour per day of samu (work practice). Dharma-talks and dokusan (private interviews) with Sensei Beate Genko Stolte. We will prepare a delicious “Thanksgiving Dinner” (with turkey) and will celebrate “Thanksgiving” with Upaya’s local sangha in the spirit of gratefulness, compassion and joy. Saturday, the 27th, the last full day of our practice and study days, we will have a daylong meditation. The writer and long time practitioner of Zen, Natalie Goldberg will join us for the day. Sensei Beate will give a dharma-talk in the afternoon. We will end on Sunday with a final council. This retreat is well suited for beginners and more advanced practitioners.
