The Sacred Art of Eating retreat led by Chozen Bays Roshi will begin at 6 p.m. June 18 and end at 2 p.m. June 20 at the Great Vow Zen Monastery in Clatskanie. Cost is $100.
Retreat organizer Ryushin Creedon said, "Sadly, in this wealthy nation, many people have lost touch with the spiritual aspects of our vital relationship with food and its sources. This problem manifests in many ways, including obesity, anorexia, and food addictions. In this retreat we will explore a variety of meditations and mindfulness tasks to help re-awaken our wonder in food, the sacred sustainer of life, and in eating, an alchemical process of transformation. The retreat will include meals of our usual tasty vegetarian dishes."
