This is a gentle introduction to Zen meditation with an experienced practitioner, Karen Sivan. It is a short immersion into the practice and Zen lifestyle, 4 nights at a homestay near Kovalam with a local family and daily sittings with Karen. Participate in meditation on the rooftop twice a day to enjoy a slower and calmer pace to life.
Accommodation will be at Ganesh House with air-conditioned or non-airconditioned rooms. It is a local homestay close to the beach and a short walk to Kin-Hin Centre. It involves with responsible tourism and government approved, you can experience village life.
This meditation retreat begins with an introduction to Zen at 16:00 on arrival day and ends after breakfast on departure day. You will have 5 days of experiential practice. The practice itself is very simple, which is why we find it difficult to master!
It is not a technique to be learned, it is more of an attitude towards life and Zen meditation is a superb spiritual practice with no promises extended.
Karen came to India in 1997 for a three-week holiday and decided to make Kerala her home. For 10 years, she ran yoga and massage holidays in Kovalam. From 2007 until mid-2012, she lived, worked, served, and followed Zen at Bodhi Zendo, blessed to have guidance and support from a Zen master, AMA Samy. She then returned to the 'marketplace' and began a new chapter with Kin-Hin. She is also a qualified aromatherapist with over 20 years experience. Her diploma in holistic aromatherapy was obtained from the Tisserand Institute in London in 1993.
Breakfast will be served at your accommodation after morning meditation.
There is an equipped kitchen for your use if you want to prepare snacks etc during the day. Additional meals can be requested in advance or explore the nearby restaurants.
