About the Retreat:
This year Sensei Al brings us a very different experience to support our spiritual growth. Zen Dialogue is a process of working with aspects of the personality that may block our energy, happiness and spiritual development. It teaches us how to discover and dialogue with aspects of the self (called “voices”) for clearer awareness in our practice and daily lives. Sensei has made Zen Dialogue a regular part of student work at his Open Mind Zen Center in Melbourne, Florida because he has found that this work offers a large advantage to students’ progress, no matter their specific practice. For more information, you are welcome to contact Sensei Al at .(321) 427-3511 or OpenMindZen@aol.com
