Robert just completed a one week self retreat at the Providence Zen Center.  It’s part of our practice to provide someone who has completed a significant retreat to process their experience during one of the dharma dialogues.  The value of this is to provide the participant to “think out loud” about his or her experience, as this supports integrating the deep changes that retreat provide with a more conscious clarity afterwards.  It also can inspire others to go on retreats as well, since this sort of intense training provides great benefit for the participants.
