Kyol Che practice clarifies our direction, resulting in a more harmonious relationship with all aspects of life. The daily schedule, conducted in silence, includes sitting, chanting, walking, and bowing meditations, as well as work practice. Meals are eaten in traditional temple style. Retreat leaders give weekly dharma talks and regular kong-an interviews. Practice in our serene woodland setting with the support of Sangha members from all over the world.

“I go to Kyol Che to find a place of escape from all the hustle and bustle of daily life, a place that allows me to look at “what is this?” A place to break free from the confinement and control I’ve imprisoned myself in, allowing me to pay attention, to listen, and hopefully wake up with one less veil over my eyes and mind.”

Sabina Klein, Chogye International Zen Center
