Zazenkai – One day retreat

A zazenkai is usually scheduled for one Sunday in months when no longer retreats are held. The zazenkai begins at 6:30am and continues until 12 noon. It includes a light breakfast, and the suggested donation fee is $10. Zazenkai’s provide a wonderful way for beginning students to experience sitting for longer periods of time.

 Dates TBA

Intensive Retreats (Sesshin) – 3, 5, and 7 day

All students are encouraged to attend retreats (sesshin) full or part-time. Retreats help to center the student and build mindfulness. Please visit the center for the daily retreat schedule.
