Soto Zen Practice and the Antioch/Carleton Reunion
With Ekai Korematsu Osho Roshi
June 7 - 9, 2019
This June, the venerated Ekai Korematsu Osho Roshi will join us for a special series of teachings on the practice of shikantaza. Roshi has been practicing and teaching within the Soto Zen school for over forty years. His knowledge, skill, and insight are directly evident in his every movement. We invite all of Gomde California’s students, as well as students training within the various esteemed Zen centers throughout California to attend our weekend of teaching and practice with this eminent master.
Furthermore, Roshi is a long-time visiting teacher to the Antioch/Carleton study abroad program in Bodh Gaya. Dozens of students who now practice and serve within the Gomde California and Rangjung Yeshe community have been profoundly influenced by his teachings. Therefore we are delighted to announce that Gomde California will host the West Coast Antioch/Carleton reunion on Sunday, June 9th, following Roshi’s teachings. If you are a part of the Antioch/Carleton reunion please register and select the “pay by check” option. Add note you are an Antioch alumn for discount pricing for this retreat.
