5th Annual EDZ Woman's Aravaipa Retreat

Thursday, September 26 – Sunday, September 29

Chris Fortin and Sue Moon will lead the 5th annual Zen Women’s Retreat at Aravaipa Canyon Ranch in Arizona.

This year the theme will be “Patience and Joyful Effort, two bodhisattva virtues.” These are two of the six paramitas discussed in Norman’s book, The World Could Be Otherwise, which is our focus for the practice period.

For three days we will ground ourselves in silent meditation and share in wholehearted conversation in the wonder of Aravaipa Canyon. While sitting under Brandenburg Mountain beside Aravaipa creek, as women together we will explore how the dharma is relevant in our lives today.

$325 includes meals and accommodations. Information about the ranch can be found at Contact Mary Koopman at for application.
