‘Body and Mind’ Retreat To the City
Stonewater Zen Centre, Liverpool

Friday 23rd – Sunday 25th February 

This retreat, led by Andy Tanzan Scott, will explore the physical aspects of zen practice and particularly the importance of posture. It will incorporate Andy’s 30 years experience of bodywork as well as some of the ideas of Will Johnson and Reginald Reay.

The slightly different long weekend format is intended to reduce the need to take time off work and participants can arrive on Thursday evening 22nd Feb and join in with our usual sitting period. Friday and Saturday will be full and intensive. We will finish after sitting and breakfast on Sunday.

The retreat will be based on a modified Retreat To The City schedule with early morning and late evening formal sitting periods with interviews and the usual Saturday morning zazenkai which are open to all.

The workshops on Friday morning and afternoon and Saturday afternoon are designed to be cumulative rather than ‘drop in’ and will be open to full time attendees only.

Meals will be vegetarian with self-serve buffet breakfast and lunch, and a soup and salad evening meal. Some basic accommodation will be available at the centre.

Costs £90 incl. food
