BUDDHA’S AWAKENING IS YOUR AWAKENING
ROHATSU RETREAT at Empty Bowl Zendo
This time of year the lengthening days of darkness and stillness become our teachers. The world begins to quiet down and so do we, turning inward to let go of what has passed and welcoming what is unfolding as we turn towards it.
Rohatsu means twelfth month eighth day, the date of Shakyamuni’s awakening, when he saw the morning star. Come join us as we explore the story of his journey of awakening and to realize that what we can discover is not different from his discovery.
We’ll offer plenty of meditation and time for reflection, plus dharma talks, and opportunities for private interviews. Participants are required to commit to all three days. Please bring a snack to share. On Friday, please bring your own lunch.
The cost for the retreat is $35. NOTE: If you plan to attend on Saturday only, the cost is $10. Please register via Google sheets by Monday, Dec 4.
