March Open Mind Retreat with John Tarrant
The Woman Who Led Two Lives
A koan tells the story of a woman who left home with a man and had a family and at the same time didn’t leave home but stayed in bed in the house she grew up in. “Which is the true woman?” the koan asks.
March 19-22, 2020
This residential retreat is held in a beautiful place on the ocean. It has a simple feel, and wonderful food prepared by the Commonweal caterers. There will be sitting together, koans, teachings, poetry, conversation. There will be time for writing and drawing and walking by the sea and under the cypress trees with the sound of waves and seals and whales to keep us company. We will make discoveries and our lives will open. No particular background in spiritual practice is required.
This retreat usually fills up early.
