An Invitation to a Heart Sutra Weekend

We warmly invite all sentient beings to join us for a Jikoji Weekend Study retreat exploring The Heart Sutra, focusing on how the Buddhist concept of non-duality figures into this familiar yet enigmatic chant. The weekend begins Friday evening, June 2, and will conclude Sunday, June 4, with our usual Sunday program.

Our discussions will be led by Jikoji Resident Teacher Doug Jacobson. "I'm excited about this weekend," Doug says, "which isn't about Dharma Talks so much as creating opportunities to talk dharma, sitting with and studying the Heart Sutra, returning to the circle to share insights of embodying this dynamic document, then sitting again."

Our schedule will include several group discussion periods, alternating with periods of zazen. Buffet meals are included. You're welcome to come for all or any part of the weekend, participating in the relaxed schedule as you wish. Our zendos are always open.

More info and a registration link can be found here.

Hope to see you there!
