The Power of Intimate Meetings

Friday, April 23 – Saturday, April 24 

Friday Evening: 7 – 9 p.m. MT (Open to the Public in addition to registrants)
Saturday Morning Session: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. MT
Saturday Afternoon Session: 2 – 4 p.m. MT


Note that times are listed for the Mountain Time Zone! (convert time zones)

Format: Online Zoom sessions

Description: How do we meet this moment of our life, or the “ten thousand things”? Zen Master Dogen once said, “Enlightenment is simply intimacy with all things.” The liberation made possible by realizing our true nature does not mature by escaping into Emptiness, but by fully embracing the moment. Buddhanature is already present, but are we open to how its response might flow effortlessly, intimately, and compassionately when we let go of trying to control life by the dictates of our conditioned mind?
