This past weekend we completed our second annual Dharma Center spring Retreat, with nineteen of us spending an evening in the woods at Osage Forest of Peace chanting, meditating (both sitting and walking the trails) and discussing the Dharma. The topic for this years retreat was Nikkyo Niwano’s view of encounters, and his statement that ‘Enlightenment is in the Encounter.’ If you missed us this spring, we will be gathering again at Osage Forest for our Fall Retreat in October.
