August Zazenkai

This 3-day silent meditation retreat will include zazen (meditation), chanting, kinhin (walking meditation), formal temple meals, work practice, Dharma talks, and optional one-on-one interviews with senior monks regarding your practice questions.

This retreat is an opportunity for everyone — regardless of their level of experience — to extend their practice. For those that have a daily meditation practice, it’s an opportunity to get introduced to other aspects of formal Zen practice such as silent, oryoki meals. For those that have done day sits, it’s a chance to do a multi-day retreat. Everyone will find a new challenge for their practice.

Friday, 8/26 and Saturday 8/27: 5:30 am – 8:30 pm
