“In between birth and death everything I have is a gift — my body, the
clothes I wear, the knowledge I have, family and friends, hobbies I enjoy,
the house I live in, and so on. They are all ‘mine’, but only as things
temporarily entrusted to me during my sojourn on earth.” — Rev. Taitetsu Unno
Most people are born, live and die without ever taking the time to truly reflect on how they have lived their lives. In our busy lives it is hard to find time for serious, quiet reflection. But to fail to look closely at the reality of our lives is to ignore what Reality can teach us. This retreat provides an unusual opportunity to step back and examine your life.
The retreat, being held May 7-13, 2017 in the Green Mountains of Vermont, will be conducted by Gregg Krech, author of the award winning book, Naikan: Gratitude, Grace and the Japanese Art of Self-Reflection. Gregg has been conducting Naikan Retreats throughout North America for the past 20 years, as well as certification programs in Japanese Psychology at the ToDo Institute.
