In the Mountains of Frisco, Colorado
Pure Awareness Zen Meditation Retreat
with the Venerable Jian Hu
The Chung Tai Zen Study Group of Denver encourages you to join the Venerable Jian Hu, Abbot of the Chung Tai Zen Center of Sunnyvale, CA, for a three day zen meditation retreat in the fresh air of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The mind calming effect of a Zen meditation retreat can be beneficial to all, regardless of background or faith.
This weekend retreat on “Pure Awareness” combines training in sitting meditation and walking meditation, a “Buddhism in Film” workshop, and mindful outdoor activities to help us attain inner peace, realize the “pure awareness” within, and discover the extraordinary activities.
Zen is a state of mind, a mind of calmness, stability, and clarity; a mind free of delusion and confusion; a mind in accord with true Reality. Such a mind is a source of wisdom and great potential. It is a state of true liberation and joy. Achieving the Zen state of mind is possible for everyone, but proper meditation and guidance is essential.
Ven. Jian Hu came to the United State as a teenager. After graduating from California Institute of Technology, he completed a doctorate in Computer Science at UC San Diego. In pursuit of a more meaningful life, he renounced all worldly attachments and studied under the auspices of the great Buddhist Master Wei Chueh in Taiwan.
Ven. Jian Hu has lectured extensively at different universities and organizations, and has conducted many meditation retreats at various monasteries as well as a monthly Zen retreat in the Zen Center of Sunnyvale.
This event is free, though we ask that participants offer a donation to offset the costs of this event. Participants are responsible for their own travel and housing expenses.
