Zen ​Sitting ​Meditation ​in ​a ​Serene ​Wooded ​Setting. ​Penuel ​Ridge ​Retreat ​Center ​is ​the ​perfect ​place ​perfect ​our ​practice. ​Located ​in ​Ashland ​City, ​just ​15 ​minutes ​drive ​from ​the ​Zen ​Center, ​Penuel ​Ridge ​has ​a ​rounded ​meditation ​hall ​(the ​Well), ​hiking ​trails ​with ​waterfalls, ​and ​comfortable ​lodgings ​that ​will ​have ​you ​sleeping ​like ​a ​baby ​after ​a ​full ​day's ​sitting. ​

Silent ​Illumination ​Sitting ​throughout ​the ​day, ​some ​yoga, ​some ​Dharma ​talks, ​some ​hiking, ​lots ​of ​fellowship ​and ​three ​square ​meals ​a ​day. ​How ​can ​you ​beat ​it?

$200 ​for ​the ​full ​retreat ​(sitting ​some ​on ​Friday ​night ​at ​6pm, ​all ​day ​Saturday, ​and ​until ​the ​afternoon ​Sunday). ​This ​includes ​overnight ​accommodations ​(sangha ​sleepover, ​basically)

$75 ​for ​just ​one ​day. ​You ​can ​eat ​with ​us ​for ​either ​one. ​And ​you ​should. ​We ​are ​doing ​low-key ​oryoki ​(retreat ​ritual ​eating). ​So ​that ​should ​be ​fun. ​ ​
