    Genzo-e Retreat @ Sanshinji - May 2012

    Hey y'all,
    I'm going to head up to Sanshinji in Bloomington, IN for one of their Genzo-e retreats. The dates are May 2-7. I've spoken with Ron(rculver), and he's on board to attend as well. We're extending the invitation to anyone who would like to join us. Here's some background information:

    Genzo-e Retreats are one of the unique offerings of Sanshin Zen Community. This retreat focuses on the study of the Shobogenzo (True Dharma Eye Treasury), the major work of the founder of Soto Zen, Dogen Zenji. Although the Shobogenzo is considered to be one of the most important Buddhist texts in Japan and has been translated into English several times, it is very difficult to understand without studying the text in its original language. The Genzo-e retreat is therefore a rare opportunity for in-depth study of Dogen with a teacher who has studied the Shobogenzo extensively and practiced with its insights for many years. Two 90-minute lectures are offered each day with some discussion. Breaks are offered to allow discussion and study of the teachings. Registration 2 weeks before the start of the retreat (postmarked) is $225, after 2 weeks is $258.
    The schedule for the retreat is posted here: http://www.sanshinji.org/genzo-e/ It's not as intense as the sesshin schedule, but it does involve 50 minute periods of zazen.

    I don't have any involvement with Sanshinji, nor am I promoting their retreat over any other. I'm attending because I would like to study with Okamura sensei. Realizing Genjokoan was, for me, an outstanding work of scholarship & understanding.

    So there it is! Hope some of you can join us, although I understand it's a commitment and challenge to family life & work.

    gassho,
    Shujin

    Hello Shujin!

    This looks great. I hope you and Ron will let us know how it was soon after retreat.

    Oh, and I like this:
    Meals during retreat are no longer taken oryoki style. We now serve meal buffet style[/

    In some way it made a smile on my face (in the good way of course).

    Shujin,
    What a great opportunity! Realizing Genjokoan is an amazing work.... I just finished reading it. Having the chance to hear/interact with Okamura sensei would be exciting.... I do not think I can make it, but I am really looking forward to your impressions. You and Ron will have a wonderful experience I am sure....

    Okamura also has a book coming out this spring on some of the chants that are central to Soto Zen practice.... looking forward to that too....

    Gassho,
    Yugen

    Dude... let me look into this. At first I thought no way, that's way too much to ask of family to be gone that long, then I saw:

    Participants may chose to attend the entire retreat or any part it. You may, for example, attend one or two full days, or you may chose to attend certain portions of all five days.
    Nice! Let me discuss with "the fam" and I'll be in touch. I've always wanted to do a retreat there, but the intense Antaiji-style sittings scared me off. This lighter sitting schedule would be much more amenable. I've read his Genjokoan book and listened to previous teachings of his on it by podcast--he really is quite insightful.

    Stay tuned...
