About the retreat

The OX Herder retreat is an exclusive retreat for those who have completed the Ox herder program. It brings together all that has been learned and experienced over the previous 10 months.

The Ox herder retreat is the gift at the end of our internal journey. 


My mind is the Ox, meditation is my path, my packs are loaded with spiritual wisdom upon the Ox.  Devotee Kabir

Reaching the source

Too many steps have been taken returning to the root and the source.

Better to have been blind and deaf from the beginning!

Dwelling in one’s true abode, unconcerned with that without –
the river flows tranquilly on and the flowers are red

Having reached the source, We prepare to enter the gateless gate.  We started with the desire to “know and tame the Ox”, to know, before I was born, where did my I come from? When I die, where will my I go?   
In sincerity we asked, "what am I?" 
We were gifted with the knowing of not knowing. Keeping this "not knowing" mind always and everywhere, is the gate to the gateless.

In walking, standing, sitting, lying down, speaking, being silent, moving, being still. At all times, in all places …. Not knowing we know 😉
