Item Description

Join Jan Chozen Bays. MD, at Great Vow Zen Monastery for this weekend retreat on eating mindfully.

"Eat when hungry, sleep when tired." This ancient Zen saying is a simple prescription for a satisfying life. But for many people, simply eating is anything but simple. It is ironic that in a land of plenty, people suffer from a disordered relationship to food.

Using the tools of insight and mindfulness participants will renew their healthy connection to hunger, food, and satisfaction. Delicious vegetarian meals are included.

Great Vow Zen Monastery, in Clatskanie, Oregon, is a "residential, Zen Buddhist, training monastery inspired and guided by Jizo Bodhisattva's vow to help all beings who suffer, no matter where they are found." The program takes place July 9 to 11 (possible Oct. 29 to 31 alternative).
