One-Day Meditation Retreat led by Ando Jaune Evans -Cancelled

April 13 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Please note the one-day sitting for this date is cancelled.

Kannon Do will host a one-day sitting on Saturday, April 13th. It is led by Ando Jaune Evans, a priest and senior teacher at the Bay Area Everyday Zen Foundation. This day of mindfulness offers a rare opportunity to turn our awareness to the simple activities that sustain our lives, and that we normally take for granted: breathing, walking, eating, being attentive to the workings of our mind. The distractions and pressures of daily responsibilities diminish, giving a wider world view a chance to appear, along with a sense of gratitude and calmness. We encourage you to organize your schedule so that you can attend this one day retreat. If you are interested in attending or have questions, please contact Dan Geiger at dan@dangeiger.com.

Ando Jaune Evans was originally ordained as a priest in the White Plum Lineage by Bernie Glassman and Taizan Maezumi Roshi in 1983 at the Zen Community of New York. She leads the Heart of Compassion Zen Sangha in Point Reyes, California. Jaune works as the Executive Director of Tamalpais Trust, a philanthropic foundation which supports and helps to protect Indigenous Peoples’ sacred lands and waters, cultural and human rights, gender empowerment, and global justice alliance-building. She serves on the Board of Directors of Commonweal, the leadership team of Healing Circles, and is an Advisor to both the Board of the UC Berkeley Human Rights Center and Mesa Refuge Writer’s Refuge.
