This retreat offers opportunities to practice meditation through movement and rest. Our aim in meditation is to experience the truth of our own nature. Retreatants will observe noble silence through sitting, chi-gong movement, dharma contemplation, journaling, and DahnJon-abiding meditation. The retreat also includes group and individual sessions. Won Buddhism values the interconnectedness of all things, so, we will practice outside, absorbing the great chi-energy of the mountains.  Through harmonizing and balancing the energy of our body and mind, we will cultivate a calm awareness and let the light of our true nature shine!
