May Practice Period Canceled

Dear One Drop Sangha and Friends, 

After further deliberation and consultation Harada Roshi has determined that it is no longer feasible to conduct our May practice period as planned.  The May 2020 practice period at Tahoma Zen Monastery is cancelled.   We look forward to training together again in September.

Samu Day at Tahoma April 27th

The May 2019 training period at Tahoma Zen Monastery begins on Sunday May 5th.  We will have a day of samu on Saturday, April 27th so that we may all work together to ready the monastery for this period of training. Samu is a natural extension of our training allowing us to freely move from work on the cushion to simple work with our hands, to the complex interactions of our daily lives. This day of samu will allow us to engage in this deep work and to share our efforts with the sangha.  So please join us for any part of the work period that you can. A simple lunch will be provided after the samu period.

5:00am Choka
6:00am Zazen

We will be on the regular monastery schedule on this day and everyone is welcome to come for any part of it. If you would like to come for choka and take part in the formal morning meal do let us know you are coming for planning purposes. Please email us at tahoma@whibey.com.
