Half-Day Sittings are an opportunity to deepen practice in a half-day of immersion in Zen Buddhism with a sangha and a teacher.
The morning will include zazen (seated meditation), kinhin (walking meditation), service and an oryoki meal. Oryoki instruction is available for those new to oryoki.
Dokusan will be available; sign up on the dokusan board when you arrive. Dokusan is a private meeting with a teacher to ask practice questions and present understanding.
Registration is $35, or $25 for pledging sangha members. Your contribution is an important portion of the Religious Education funds that sustain our practice. Payment can be mailed, delivered or paid below via PayPal.
The menu will be vegetarian. We adhere to Buddha's teaching of 'no picking and choosing' and we are unable to cater to food preferences. List medical dietary restrictions (e.g. diabetes or pregnancy) on your registration form and the tenzo (head cook) will be sure to keep you nourished.
Registration is open until February 11.
