Silence, meditation, mindful meals, Dharma discussion, yoga, and talks by and personal interviews with the teacher are intended to provide conditions favorable for remembering and cultivating the profound resource of compassion towards ourselves and all beings. 

This non-residential weekend retreat, held mostly in silence, is recommended for both beginning and experienced meditators. 

Zen Master Dae Gak is the Founder, Abbot and Guiding Teacher of Furnace Mountain. He has practiced Zen for almost forty years, and received Inka (permission to teach in 1986) and final Dharma transmission as a Zen Master from the Korean Zen Master Seung Sahn in 1994. Since his recognition as a teacher Zen Master Dae Gak has directed his life toward supporting people in their efforts to realize their original nature of fearless immediacy and unbounded compassion, following the clear teaching of the Zen Ancestors and his own realization that the practice of spiritual inquiry cannot be fixed, organized or institutionalized.
