4 day Zen Retreat with Zen Master Dae Gak of Furnace Mountain Zen Centre, Kentucky, USA.We are very happy that Zen Master Dae Gak is returning to East Down again this year. He is the guiding teacher of Bristol Zen Centre. This is a zen retreat of silent sitting, chanting and walking meditation practice.
ZMDG gives daily dharma talks and is always very generous with the time he gives to individual interviews.Whether we are new to practice or long term zen students, Zen Master Dae Gak has a wonderful capacity to meet us where we are and support our practice through his many years as a Zen Master and also his work as a clinical psychologist/psychotherapist.Zen Master Dae Gak is the founder, abbot and guiding teacher of Furnace Mountain Zen Centre. He has practiced Zen for over forty years, and received Inka (permission to teach) in 1986 and final Dharma transmission as a Zen Master from the Korean Zen Master Seung Sahn in 1994. Before becoming a student of Zen Master Seung Sahn, he studied extensively with other teachers in Japanese lineages. He is the author of two books, “Going Beyond Buddha” and “Upright with Poise and Grace”
