A lecture is a great opportunity to get acquainted with Buddhist psychology and with the insight of Zen Master Cuong Lu. You learn to listen and develop more understanding to let go of misunderstandings. Such a lecture works liberating.
A seminar consists of a lecture, a lunch in silence and an afternoon activity. There is more contact with Cuong Lu as a teacher and also with other participants. In the afternoon activity we have the opportunity to ask questions and share experiences. Throughout the day there is a lot of attention to apply the teaching in practice.
A retreat is a wonderful opportunity for inner growth, both individually and with the group. In a retreat we receive a lecture of Cuong Lu every day. In addition, there are meditation sessions, eating in silence, sharing experiences, questions and answers and more. There is also an opportunity to consult Cuong Lu personally. Between the activities, there is enough room for walking, resting, reading a book or talking with other participants. There are weekend retreats and 5-day retreats. A weekend will take place from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. A 5-day retreat could take place from Monday evening to Saturday afternoon. In order to participate in a retreat, experience with Buddhism or meditation is not necessary. We learn to use Buddhist psychology in daily life. Cuong Lu is a master in providing guidance that is very valuable to everyone, regardless of your experience.
