2-Day Silent Illumination Retreat Dec 5-7th 2014

Silent Illumination is one of two meditation methods  that were introduced by the Chan  School in China.  Developed by Chan Master Hongzhi Zhengjue (1091-1157) of the Caodong (曹洞宗).  It is a method that marries both calming and insight meditation.  Chan Master Shengyen revived this practice for use today.
