Retreats - Yong Maeng Jong Jin

Retreats - Yong Maeng Jong Jin
The practice of Zen is based on meditation techniques, that were taught in Buddhism for 2500 years. The name "Yong Maeng Jong Jin" is Korean which literally means “valorous or intrepid concentration”, paraphrased “to leap like a tiger while sitting”. In the west it is a short silent retreat of two to seven days involving thirteen hours of formal meditation practice a day. Participants follow a schedule of bowing, sitting, chanting, eating, and working, with an emphasis on sitting meditation. During the retreat each participant has interviews with a Zen Master or Ji Do Poep Sa Nim.

Beginners are welcome. Here is an introduction into the forms of the Kwan Um School of Zen:
