Kido Chanting Retreat with Nancy Hedgpeth JDPSN August 15th 9:00am - 3:00pm.
Kido chanting retreats consist primarily of chanting from 9:00am to 3:00pm with a break at noon for an informal lunch followed by a short group work period.. We chant â€œKwan Seum Bosalâ€, the Korean name for the bodhisattva of compassion, while sitting, standing and walking (similar to the special chanting that we do every evening at 6:30pm). This retreat is suitable for beginners as well as experienced students.
Registration is at 8:00am and orientation at 8:30am. Please arrive on time.
