An Invitation to a Zen Retreat

Zen Retreat Invitation

An invitation to attend a Zen retreat 16 years ago from Sr. Perla Macapinlac, an ICM nun. Attended the 6-day retreat, and it changed my life. An account of what happened to me during that retreat is found in this blog post:

  1. I remember that post. I think it’s good to re-post things from time to time, especially if they’ve been of value to us, rather than just being “popular.” Happy memories!

  2. Linda, a few weeks ago Jojang was going through some of our things, and she stumbled upon this invitation (which I thought I already lost). Knowing what this Zen retreat meant for me, she immediately scanned the invitation.

    I was overjoyed when I found out about this — it brought back good memories. Needless to say, that was a life-changing event for me, where I experienced a dramatic shift of consciousness, which changed my perspective on reality and to this day informs the way I look at people, events, and circumstances in my life.

    You’re right, it’s good to re-post things that are of value to us. Aside from bringing back good memories, it enables us to reflect upon it more deeply, giving us fresh insights as to what it means in the way we approach life…
