Zen Master Tenkei said, «See with your eyes, smell with your nose, taste with your tongue... nothing in the universe is hidden.» Each day we will be practicing this with a three hour cooking class, which is a participatory hands-on opportunity to find out for yourself what’s what: especially learning cutting skills (I bring sharp knives) and tasting the assembly of dishes adding one ingredient at a time, so that you know salt, sweet, sour, pungent (scharf), and bitter, so that you experience earth, stem/leaf, fruit and how these elements work together. We will work to care for the ingredients and the work space. Learning is facilitated with practicing silence in class. Opportunities to learn in this hands-on, carefully-tasting fashion are fairly rare.
Talks each evening will be based on Zen Master Dogen's «Instructions to the Cook» (Tenzokyōkun). In addition to kitchen work, we will practice sitting meditation in the morning and late afternoon – as well as some simple Qi Gong first thing in the day.
Silence will be an important aspect during parts of the retreat.
Eine Stunde Arbeitsmeditation pro Tag (Samu/Karma Yoga) ist integraler Bestandteil bei allen Aufenthalten im Felsentor.
