Mountains sea person

Body like a mountain,
Heart like the ocean,
Mind like the sky – Dogen

Dwelling together by the sea and under wide open skies at Othona retreat centre for this weekend, we will explore the multilayered meanings of Zen Master Dogen’s evocative aphorism – and perhaps experience glimpses of its meaning in our own bodies, hearts and minds.


The programme will include sitting and walking meditation, Dharma talks and discussion, and plenty of time and space for communing with the elements and opening up to Othona’s unique landscape and atmosphere.

Akashadevi, Bodhilila & Dharmavadana
