The theme for the retreat will be: Zen Mind is Ordinary Mind: Taking Lessons from the Cushion into Everyday Life.

Retreats are an excellent way to experience Zen practice. Beginners are welcome and encouraged to attend. Retreats are a balance of group practice and individual initiative under the guidance of a teacher. A long sitting is a time of sustained meditation, an opportunity to simplify our lives.

This retreat will include  a tea ceremony, sitting meditation, walking meditation, and Dharma Talks. 

Fee: $30.00 Donation.
