Vancouver Street Retreat • August 2-5

March 7, 2007

Awake in Action Logo for Vancouver Street RetreatLisa told us about an amazing information resource on street retreats in general – and on the upcoming Vancouver one in particular – from Awake in Action.

That new section of the Awake in Action website describes the pioneering work done by Roshi Bernie Glassman, starting in 1991. (In 1999, Harmony/Bell Tower published his book, Bearing Witness: A Zen Master’s Lessons in Making Peace.)

This book will touch your heart and make you think deeply about life, your own comfortable life with heat and light and computers, versus the dirty, cold, unsafe life on the streets.
