Meditation Retreat in Tokyo

Compassionate Life Innovation

Message from Dr. Barry Kerzin

We will hold a 2-day weekend retreat that you all are welcome to join. The essence will be innovative compassion. When you are sad, practice compassion. When you are happy, practice compassion. Compassion is the very best medicine. This is an innovative, new way of thinking. We will also discuss and practice the full form of universal compassion, called Bodhicitta. Included in Bodhicitta is the wisdom of emptiness, which we will discuss following the teaching on the Heart Sutra, Hanya Shinkyo. During both days we will practice a variety of meditations, even outdoors weather and conditions permitting. Please don’t miss this special event.
