Pat Hawk

                Pat Hawk was a Redemptorist priest and a student of Robert Aitken, who gave him Dharma transmission. Hawk facilitated both Christian contemplative retreats and Zen retreats at the Mercy Center in Tucson, Arizona. He made every attempt to keep the two separate, although Zen students were welcome to attend the Contemplative retreats, and the Christian contemplatives were welcome at the Zen retreats. The two types of retreat both focused on meditation, but, as Hawk put it, “We change the idols on the altar.”
