“Clouds sweep the eternal sky; nesting in the moon, the crane—
The cold clarity gets into his bones, he can’t go to sleep.”
(From Case 7, Book of Serenity; photo by Gendo Roshi)








There is a kind of cold that gets into our bones in January, but it is not the kind of cold that has to do with the weather.  Cold, winter, and ice—these are Zen tropes for the mind that awakens in the midst of meditation.  Please join us at Kyoseikan Dojo in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for the Sweeping Clouds Zazenkai. This retreat will begin at 7:00 PM, Saturday, January 25 and end at 4:30 PM, Sunday, January 26.  Practitioners of all levels of experience are encouraged to attend this day that will be rich with opportunities for meditation, scripture recitation, teisho, and dokusan with Gendo Roshi.  Two vegetarian meals will be included.

To participate, please complete our Event Registration Form by no later than January 22.  Your timely registration and payment ($30) allow us to plan a menu and make other arrangements.

We look forward to practicing with you!
