In keeping with the 2,500 year old tradition the teachers are not paid for teaching the dharma. Dana is the practice of generosity through which we offer donations to our teachers as a sign of our respect for the teaching and it's value in our lives. You will have the opportunity to practise dana during this retreat.
About Gorricks Run...
Kodoji, Ancient Ground Zendo at Gorricks Run, nestles in a deep valley beneath the high sandstone cliffs of Yengo National Park. It is approximately two hours north- north west of Sydney near Upper Macdonald, NSW.
The simple facilities include a cottage equipped with a kitchen, camping, bush showers and a large and magnificent dojo (meditation hall).
ACCOMMODATION is mainly camping, so please bring your own tent etc. There is some room for people to sleep on the veranda of the dojo. If you intend to
drive a small campervan to sleep in, please be aware you will be driving on dirt road to get to Gorrick's. There is one room in the cottage with 4 beds, priority is given to those who ask first and/or to those with special needs.
