Silent meditation retreats with Zen master Ama Samy

September 18-20 and September 20-25, 2020

At Cliffview Resort in Red River Gorge, Kentucky


Who am I? Why am I here? What is the point of it all? Where do I go? How do I find freedom, peace and joy?

​​Find time to be with yourself and your own life questions at a silent meditation retreat with the guidance of Zen masters Ama Samy and Olaf Muyōju.

Ama Samy has been visiting Cincinnati since 1991 to offer annual Zen retreats. This will be his last visit.
