Bodhi Sangha Loveland Zen Ama Samy

Silent meditation retreats with Zen master Ama Samy

September 8-10 and September 10-15, 2023

At Cliffview Resort in Red River Gorge, Kentucky

Who am I?  Why am I here?
Where do I go? How do I find freedom, peace and joy?

​​In the silent company of the other retreatants and with the guidance of Zen masters Ama Samy and Olaf Muyōju, you will find time to be with yourself and your own life questions.

Unifying body, mind, and spirit, time spent on retreat can be deeply grounding and liberating. Click here for an example daily schedule.
