4 Day Monsoon Mini Break with Zen Meditation in Kerala, India

Kin-Hin Zen Centre, Kovalam, Trivandrum 695527 India

Zen Meditation Retreat India

As a human, you would want to feel in control. However, Zen encourages you to take a fresh look at your inbred beliefs, to make mistakes and not be horrified by them. Zen acknowledges that there will always be conflicts in your life and encourages you not to dwell upon them. Kerala is always green, and during the monsoon season, its greenery positively explodes and it is a great time to have a well-deserved mini-break.

Program

Meditation or Zazen

In its beginning stages, Zazen is a practice of concentration. More than just meditation, Zazen is a powerful tool for self-inquiry. Through Zazen, you can come to grasp Dogen's definition of Zen, to forget yourself and be enlightened by the ten thousand things and through that understanding, you have the potential to transform your life.

Zen is not a technique to be learned, it is more of an attitude toward life and Zen meditation is a superb spiritual practice with no technique to learn and no promises extended.

Understanding Zen means understanding yourself. This understanding cannot be found in books. One needs to experience Zen and the experience needs to be first hand. Zen is to experience observing all your thoughts without acting on them. Be the master of your mind and not a slave.
