ME - Treetop Zen Center

Post by Qian Zheng Yi » Thu Mar 08, 2012 10:42 pm

From The Treetop Zen Center in Maine:

Treetop Zen Center provides a place to practice Zen meditation in central Maine, close to both Waterville and Augusta. There are meditation sessions twice weekly (Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings), weekend retreats, and two annual week-long retreats. We welcome you to attend any event at any time. If you've not had any background or experience in sitting (meditation), someone from Treetop will show you how. Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to any scheduled sit to allow time for instruction. The practice at Treetop is relaxed. Dharma talks are given most Saturdays, and private interviews are available to all.

Zen & Deep Ecology Wilderness Retreat: Nahmakanta
October 19–21, 2012
In Nahmakanta it is possible to find true quiet, absolutely free of the sounds of mechanized human activity. We will walk in silence among these hills and sit in quietude by the ponds. We will experience what few persons in 21st century America will ever know —deep connection with land that is still wild.
