Aug. 1, 07 – COMING HOME

Please join us on Aug. 1, 07 for a public talk entitled, “COMING HOME” by Sensei Grover Genro Gauntt who will be leading the Vancouver Street Retreat taking place Aug. 2-5.
———————————————————————————————–
There will be a open house meditation from 7:00 – 8:00, followed by tea and cookies and the talk will commence at about 8:15. This talk is open to all, no registration required – by donation.

– A street retreat is a plunge into the unknown. An opportunity to go beyond our imagined limits. A chance to see beyond our small selves, to begin to eliminate the barriers. It’s the barest poke at renunciation. –

Sensei Grover Genro Gauntt, is a Founding Teacher of the Zen Peacemaker Order and a dharma successor of Roshi Bernie Glassman. He started studying with Maezumi Roshi at the Zen Center of Los Angeles in 1971 serving as Board Chairman there from 1987 to 1997. After the passing of Maezumi Roshi in 1995, he worked closely with Bernie and started serving full time as Executive Director of the Peacemaker Community in early 1997. He studied at the University of Southern California and at the Wharton school of the University of Pennsylvania and has an MBA in finance. Feeling that his path was to unfold from a lay perspective, he pursued a professional career in real estate and finance forming Western Property Research, a real estate consulting firm that operated from 1984 to 1997. He has two sons, John and Parker. Baptized as a Congregationalist and raised as a Presbyterian, his interfaith studies have led him to explore Native American traditions and Sufi Muslim practices. Further interfaith plunges will include Jewish and Catholic retreats.
