The Men's Retreat at Great Tree September 22 & 23, 2018
Women's Summer Sesshin August 14-19
Our vision is to provide a safe and healthy environment for the practice of Zen Buddhism as it has been passed down through the Soto lineage and to create space for dialogue and the exploration of feminine spirituality within that tradition.
A special sesshin for women only led by Rev. Tenku Ruff. Rev. Ruff trained in Zen monasteries in Japan and North America. She ordained as a priest under Tessai Yamamoto Roshi, Abbot of Kannonji Temple in Morioka, Japan and received dharma transmission in the same lineage. Tenku holds a Master of Divinity degree from Maitripa College and she is also a Board Certified Chaplain (BCC). Tenku has interests in ethics, chaplaincy, and inter-Buddhist / interfaith dialogue.
