The West Houston Zen Center will hold its annual fall retreat with Zen Master Dae Gak beginning at 6:00 PM Friday evening, October 25, 2013, running through Noon Sunday, October 27. On Sunday, following the retreat, retreatants are invited to join the Korean Nam Son Sa temple members for lunch.
The Retreat will feature Zen meditation sitting periods, walking periods, Zen chanting, formal and informal Dharma Talks and personal interviews with Zen Master Dae Gak. Zen Master Dae Gak is the guiding teacher of the Furnace Mountain Zen Retreat Center located east of Lexington, Kentucky. See http://zenmind.org/menu.html. Daniela Myozen Herzog, a Furnace Mountain Zen teacher, has accepted our invitation to attend the retreat this year also.
Participants are encouraged to stay at the Center for the entire retreat to enhance the energy and focus of the group. Plenty of carpeted floor space is available to provide sleeping space for all (feel free to bring an air mattress). Several sleeping rooms and beds are available and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.
