This retreat offers a spiritual inward journey. We will focus on traditional methods of Zen meditation like Zazen (sitting) and Kihnin (walking) as a tool to enter the stillness of the present moment and as a bridge to making art objects or “meditation rings” that will join together to create the art installation. This collective art piece will be the backdrop for a unique meditative experience, and the culmination of our journey together.

Packages range from $1595 - $2595 per week per person, depending on accommodation and occupancy, and include 6 nights accommodations, 3 healthy buffet style meals per day made with locally sourced ingredients, all retreat sessions, and ground transportation to and from San Jose International Airport.
