Please join us for a day of intensive practice deep in the dog days of summer. As we begin to ramp up for the Autumn training period and sesshin in September this a valuable opportunity to recommit to the practice.
All of the events of this retreat are open for in-person and drop-in attendance if you are fully vaccinated. While one can drop into any of the periods without prior notice, if you wish to attend the whole day, or through any of the meals you must contact us by Thursday August 18th. If you’d like to make it a weekend of practice from Friday through Sunday or an overnight please contact us to make arrangements. Please note that any overnight stays need to be arranged by Thursday August 18th. If there is limited in-person signups this retreat will be shift to drop-in and online attendance only.
We will continue to broadcast these retreats via Zoom for those unable to join us. We will begin the online broadcast during regular Friday evening zazen and conclude after Sunday’s Zazenkai allowing for one to be able to extend ones practice beyond the full day.
