The Beginning to Practice Doubting Meditation Retreat Series 2022-2023 will take place from 9 pm December 30th, 2022, to 7 pm January 1st, 2023 (PST, UTC-8). Practitioners are to read 12 sections of Dahui Zonggao’s (大慧宗杲, 1089 – 1163) teaching in his legendary Treasury of the Eye of True Teaching (正法眼藏) to learn how to practice doubting meditation (or huatou 話頭 as in traditional Chinese term). Zen beginners and seasoned practitioners are both welcome. Previous doubting meditation experience is not required.
The hybrid retreat will run around the clock, 24 hours a day, to serve the global community. Shifu (Master or Teacher) Linda and Shifu Jeremy will devote 12 to 16 hours per day to leading the retreat so that practitioners can log in to the real-time lecture classes and guided meditation sessions via Zoom from anywhere. Zoom retreat attendees may adjust retreat schedules to fit their local time zone. Below please find the Retreat Day 1 Schedule with 4 different time zones for your reference. We will email you the retreat schedule with Zoom links to access the real-time sessions when you are accepted to the retreat.
We will also host intensive in-person Zen training in Chan Grove (Taipei, Taiwan) and None Zen Center Tainan International Zen House (Tainan, Taiwan). You may choose the type of retreat (Zoom or in-person) and in-person retreat site when filling out the application form.
