Sŏn Home Practice Retreat 20-24 April

With Stephen Batchelor and Martine Batchelor, assisted by Tony O’Connor

Retreat Description
In this online retreat we will seek a balance between the calm of open awareness and a focus of deep inquiry into the nature of our lives through the question ‘What is this?’ Equal emphasis will be given to traditional instructions and contemporary interpretation of the tradition.

If some people can join in all offerings this is wonderful, but you are welcome to join whichever sessions you can. Please be there 2 to 3 minutes before the beginning of the specific session you are able to attend.
