Jizo Bodhisattva

Jizo Retreat at Tassajara Zen Mountain Center with Dojin and Chris Fortin

June 21-24

Come explore the practices and qualities embodied by Jizo Bodhisattva, fearless guardian of children, travelers, pilgrims, those who grieve, and those who are crossing over.

Jizo Bodhisattva, whose name means “Earth Womb,” is the being who represents the archetype of fearlessness and a deep caring heart in Buddhism. Inspired by Jizo’s Great Vow to help all beings cross over from places of suffering, we will explore what this effort means to us, and how we each express it in our own lives. We will also engage and practice with all the qualities Jizo embodies: fearlessness, love, connection, and nourishment, through art, writing, ritual, hiking, and meditation; while being refreshed by the quiet, wonderful food, community, and mountains, and waters of Tassajara.
