In-Person Retreat with Gilbert Gutierrez

DDRC will hold our first in-person retreat since shutting down for the COVID-19 quarantine. We will only accept people who can show proof of being fully vaccinated no later than June 27, 2021. During the retreat we will require masks and social distancing. Space is limited, so please apply early.

The name of the retreat is How To Meditate: Right View Chan Training Application. The ancient Masters implored practitioners to turn the Mind’s eye inward. Do you understand? Bah! Have a cup of tea. Learn to practice via Mind’s own perception. This retreat will focus on getting the basics of meditation right so that the practice may properly progress. The ancients also said something to the effect of “be off by an inch and be off by a mile.” Meditation is a precise practice. When properly applied the awakening to the self nature of Mind is possible.
