Gateway to Chan Retreat (4-Day)

Friday November 27 (6:30pm) – Monday November 30 (3:00pm)

Led by Guo Gu

We’re happy to offer a 4-day Gateway to Chan online retreat led by our teacher Guo Gu from Friday November 27 – Monday November 30, starting at 7:30am EST every morning and ending at 10 pm EST. Guo Gu will provide one live dharma talk a day in the evening (6:30pm) (see schedule below for details), and private one-on-one interview for those participating in the full retreat. We will play pre-recorded dharma talks (curated by Guo Gu) during the morning and afternoon dharma talk.

We have made three options available to enhance your practice with guided sits, stretching yoga, walking meditation, and instructions. Once you register for a specific option, we ask you to join the sessions at the designated times (though you are welcome to join at any time). For those doing the full retreat, we will have a running Zoom meeting during the entirety of the retreat, with meditation sits, yoga videos, and walking meditation.

Registration Deadline: Thursday November 26
