         Slow down, observe and refresh this spring in the stunning surrounds of Kodoji.
 Beginning on Friday evening, this is a weekend of haiku, walking meditation, sketching made clear
                                  and easy, and some lino cutting.
                              led by Diana Levy and Janet Selby
This ‘treat’ is a chance to gather impressions and record them in words and drawings in your own journal.
Diana will show you how to write haiku – we will write and walk.
Janet will show you how to draw a graphic to accompany them.
We will have meditation, yoga, inspiration from the bush, and time to rest in the afternoons.
No art experience is necessary as the leaders will teach the techniques and skills required.
All materials will be provided. However, feel free to bring along your own journal, paints, and any other
art materials you may like to use.

Bring enough food for one meal to share with the group.

Kodoji means Ancient Ground Temple, and is SZC’s retreat centre in the Upper MacDonald Valley,
approximately two hours north-west of Sydney via Wiseman’s Ferry and St Albans, built over the last twenty
years by Zen students. Kodoji sits in a beautiful valley in Gorricks Run, surrounded by high sandstone cliffs
and deep wilderness. There is limited indoor accommodation. Most people pitch a tent.

SZC members $100, non-members $125, part time $40 per day, $50 for non-members.
Payments after due date incur a 10% additional fee. No bookings after August 31.
