Kido chanting retreats consist primarily of chanting from 9:00am to 3:30pm with a break at noon for an informal lunch. We chant “Kwan Seum Bosal”, the Korean name for the bodhisattva of compassion, while sitting, standing and walking (similar to the special chanting that we do every evening at 6:30pm). These retreats are suitable for beginners as well as experienced students.
Members and Full-Time Students $45,
Dharma Teachers and Dharma Teachers in Training $35
Registration is 8:30am and orientation is at 8:45am.
Kido means “energy path”.
Why do this?
“When we do chanting meditation correctly, perceiving the sound of our own voice and the voices all around us, our minds become clear… you and the universe have already become one, suffering disappears, true happiness appears.” Zen Master Seung Sahn
