Event description

Description

Wise people care for others just as they care for themselves. —Dogen Zenji

Amid 70 pine-covered acres known as Evergreen Hill, on a 150-year-old estate recommissioned as the House Of Mercy, enter the compassionate heart of wisdom. Join Karen Maezen Miller and the Dewdrop Sangha in a traditional Zen meditation retreat for all levels of practitioners. Experience the loving presence of sitting in silence or walking in meditation, chanting, Dharma talks and private encounters with a teacher. Special attention and support will be given to beginners. Three nights, all meals included.

Our hosts are the Sisters of Mercy, who have tended this refuge for nearly one hundred years and are welcoming us with open arms.

All overnight rooms are single occupancy. A small number have private baths; most share hallway baths.

Nearest airports are Toledo Express (1 hr) or Detroit International (90 mins).

Please bring your own zafu or sitting bench along with a zabuton or folded blanket to place under you while you sit. Chairs are provided. Wear dark, loose-fitting clothing (shirts and long pants) suitable for sitting on the floor and easy on-and-off shoes.

Note: Partial scholarships may be available for this event. If finances prevent you from attending, contact the organizer for more information.
