90 days retreat
Kyolche is a traditional Korean Zen retreat. The name means “tight dharma” or “coming together.” In our temple it is hold one 90 days winter retreat when when we do intensive sitting practice.
The minimum participation is 3 days, maximum 90 days. The schedule is the same for all weeks, except for the intensive week, when there is additional night practice.
During the whole time participants stay in the retreat place, have no contact with outside world, keep silence and follow the practice schedule. There are kong-an interviews usually three times a week and a Dharma Talk once a month. All this creates a perfect opportunity to pay full attention to practice.
