Chicago Street Retreat

4/20/2017, 2:30pm - 4/23/2017, 12:00pm at Chicago

Please note that the dates have changed.

A street retreat is a plunge into the unknown. It is an opportunity to go beyond our imagined limits. It's the barest poke at renunciation. We will live on the streets of Chicago with no resources other than our true nature, experiencing homelessness first-hand, having to beg for money, find places to get food, shelter, to use the bathroom, etc. By bearing witness to homelessness, we begin to see our prejudices and boundaries directly and to recognize our common humanness. It is a way to experience our interconnection and realize our responsibilities.

The retreat starts on Thursday, April 20 at 2:30 PM and will end on Sunday, April 23 by noon. Led by Roshi Grover Genro Gauntt. Meeting place TBA. Further details are available here.
