The Elegant Path of the Book of Serenity
Fall Retreat with John Tarrant & Friends
October 13-20, 2019
Place: Land of Medicine Buddha, Soquel CA.
The Book of Serenity is collection of 100 koans and poems, which was assembled for Yelu Chucai, a minister of Ghenghis Khan. The book was lost in the wars and rewritten and when it finally arrived out on the steppes, the ministers sat up all night in a yurt reading
and discussing it.
We live in strange times when the old forms are falling away. We might need to find solutions that we couldn’t imagine and were not even looking for. The Book of Serenity is like a great river that carries us, a force greater than our small concerns.
Our long Autumn retreat is a deep exploration of the most important matters with silence, teachings, and intimate conversations with teachers.
