Wu De will be facilitating a six-day retreat in the Spanish Pyrenees. It will be a Zen & Tea One Flavor retreat focusing on the connection between meditation and tea. Participants will gather fresh spring water, meditate a few hours a day, learn chanting and have tea as well as Zen discourses throughout. It will be a rare chance to deepen your practice and learn tea at the same time. And, if that wasn't enough, it is being held at a gorgeous venue in the mountains of rural Spain. This event will run from October 8th to 14th. If you are interested in attending, please check out the website: www.casacuadrau.org.
Wu De will also be traveling in Germany and the Czech Republic after the retreat, sharing tea and teaching Cha Dao.
Do I judge myself? Before I can start participating in the world in a compassionate way, I must first learn to love myself, accepting all my character defects as the first step in overcoming them.
