Charli Vogt 

Charli Vogt has been a spiritual seeker as long as she can remember, through Lutheran Catechism, Pagan studies, Feminist spirituality and Buddhism.  Her work as a nurse midwife is a major influence in her orientation to the body as a vehicle to spiritual realization.  She has been studying Buddhism intensely since 2007, when she received the precepts from Thich Nhat Hanh and has studied with multiple Vipassana and Thai Forest teachers.  She has earnestly studied Zen, attending many talks and presentations at Upaya Zen Center (Zoom), and is currently studying  personally with Sensei Shun’E Ulrike Greenway (Zoom), and reading Dogen’s Shobogenzo with Kanshin Svani Grevemeyer (her daughter).

Kanshin Erica Grevemeyer

Rev. Kanshin Erica Grevemeyer (she) is a white, cis-gender female novice Zen priest, ordained by Rev. angel Kyodo williams, Roshi in 2013. She has trained as a Buddhist chaplain at Upaya Zen Center with Roshi Joan Halifax. She has been the practice leader and Zen Change Coach in the online program 27days of Change and was a long time practice leader of the newDharma Community in Berkeley, CA. She currently co-holds the Zen practice group at San Quentin State Prison and has been teaching yoga to seniors for nearly a decade.
      Kanshin’s practice has always been about coming back to being human. She has her feet on the ground, is practical & pragmatic, and is more interested in meeting you where you are than in getting you to contort yourself into something you are not. She is committed to and consistently enriched by her students and others in her practice communities.  Out of a deep commitment to equity and inclusion, she works with students of all ages, shapes and abilities including seniors, women in recovery, and incarcerated men.

What to expect  This will be a full day of sitting and walking meditation practice, with time for group discussions. All are welcome, no previous experience with meditation required.

What to bring?  Wear comfortable clothing. We have plenty of floor cushions and chairs. OR, if you prefer your own you may bring a cushion, bench or chair. You might want to bring a light sweater or light blanket, since it is not possible to make the temperature perfect for everyone. 

Facility  This retreat will be held at our main location in Chamblee, Georgia and via Zoom. 


Lunch  If attending in person, please bring a box lunch for yourself.  We will provide refrigeration space.  There will be enough time to prepare lunch, if you are attending via Zoom and not at the zendo.
