Meditation Retreat in Yamanashi Pref. by Lake Shoji (one of the five lakes at the foot of Mt. Fuji.) 

Message from Dr. Barry Kerzin
“Meditation retreat gives us the opportunity to assess our lives by going inward and being silent. We learn ways to transform our anger, jealousy, and pride into tolerance, appreciation, and humility. This brings more self-confidence and joy in our hearts and minds. The best kind of meditation retreat is for life, or until we reach enlightenment. Most people are not ready to make that commitment. For them a three-year retreat is best. Many are not ready to make that commitment. For them a six-day retreat is best. Some are not ready to make that commitment. For them a four-day retreat is offered. Changing our old negative habits is not easy. It takes time and commitment. The rewards are beyond imagination. Come fly with us in the sky of happiness, and join our retreat.”
– Dr. Barry Kerzin
