Van 7 tot 10 september 2022 is er een straatretraite in Helsinki, Finland, onder leiding van Frank De Waele Roshi, en Mikko Ijäs van Peacemakers Finland. Informatie en opgave (let op: wachtlijst): firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dit staat er op de website van de Finse Peacemakers: “A Street Retreat is a plunge into the unknown. It’s a spiritual practice started in New York by American Zen teacher-social activist Bernie Glassman Roshi in the early 1990s. According to Glassman Roshi, at the heart of Buddhist practice is the awakening to experience the oneness and interconnectedness of life. To nurture this experience, he developed practices suited for Western practitioners, of which Street Retreats in various cities are the most significant alongside with Bearing Witness retreats at genocide venues.
Street Retreat participants live on the city streets for four days without permanent protection, money, a cell phone. The Street Retreat participants are only allowed to bring their own clothes, a sleeping bag and their imagination. They experience living on the street first hand. They have to beg and look for places where they can get food, shelter and where they can go to the toilet.
In the mid-1990s, Bernie Glassman Roshi together with his wife Jishu Holmes founded the Zen Peacemakers to unite socially engaged Buddhist practitioners.”
