That Is Not Your Mind A Meditation and Qigong Retreat


Experience dharma talks, guided meditations, qigong, and more with American Zen teacher and senior teacher of Dayan (Wild Goose) qigong Robert Meikyo Rosenbaum.

Robert's program will ground your meditation and qigong practice through teachings and exercises from the Surangama Sutra and contemporary findings from neuroscience and psychology. Based on his book That Is Not Your Mind! Zen Reflections on the Surangama Sutra, you will

  • Manifest your mind's innate compassion and insight through bodily expression
  • Learn how your body and mind give rise to illusions and are also gateways to your liberation
  • Center on the living heart of your experience through stillness in motion and motion in stillness.     

The Surangama Sutra has not been widely disseminated in the West so experienced participants will likely encounter new teaching stories and practical  exercises, while novices will find them a good introduction to the joys of meditation and movement. 

Note This program is suitable for all levels of practitioners.
