At The Boghill Centre, The Burren, County Clare, Ireland With Ingen Breen and Shokuchi Deirdre Carrigan

“What is it to Return to the Source? Can I do it here and now? Is it really possible?”

The ancient wilderness and primordial beauty of the Burren will inspire, saturate, and ground our sense of being and open doors to new becomings in this Zen and Yoga retreat.
We will explore the core of both traditions, discovering how they support and complement each other, and how they bring our lives into a deeper, fuller, and richer communication with reality.

Ingen is a Soto Zen priest and teacher in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, having received ordination and dharma transmission (2000 and 2009) from former Abbott Zoketsu Norman Fischer.
Originally from Ireland, Ingen arrived at Green Gulch Farm / Green Dragon Temple in '95 , having spent the previous four years practicing with the (then) Western Buddhist Order. When he left the Zen Center in '07, Ingen trained in bodywork therapy; Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Shiatsu at the McKinnon Institute in Oakland and the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley. Ingen lives in Ireland and teaches in Belfast, Cork, and his home in Dublin, as well as California and England (Hebden Bridge, T otnes and Glastonbury).

Shokuchi Deirdre Carrigan is an ordained Soto Zen priest in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, founder of San Francisco Zen Center, and has been teaching yoga since 1988. She met her teachers, Tenshin Reb Anderson Roshi and Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher Donald Moyer, in a Zen and Yoga retreat at Green Gulch Farm 30 years ago and has been practicing both Zen meditation and Yoga since that time.
She has lived at Green Gulch Farm Zen Center since 2007 where she currently heads the Guest Program, teaches Yoga and leads retreats in Zen & Yoga: The Practice of Samadhi.

Ingen and Shokuchi have been co-leading Zen and Yoga retreats since 2003, at Zen Mountain Center (Tassajara) and Green Dragon Temple (Green Gulch Farm) in California. Now this wonderful combination of two powerful traditions are being brought to the Boghill Centre in the Burren, Co. Clare, Ireland.
