This is an opportunity to taste the subtle flavors of our beautiful tradition in action. If you are curious about stepping into this kind of event for the first time, ask another sangha member about it. This is a chance to find out what Zen Buddhist practice means in others’ lives.
The One-Day will include seated meditation, walking meditation, oryoki meals, dharma talk, tea and rest time.
Men’s and women’s overnight accommodations are available on Saturday night. Overnight students will arrive at 6:30 pm on Saturday for greeting and check-in with the shika (student host) and receive oryoki instruction at 7:00 pm if needed.
Registration opens June 1, and will be due June 17
Registration is $50, or $40 for pledging sangha members. Cost includes breakfast, lunch, tea and the optional Saturday overnight accommodation.
One-Day Sittings take place on weekends so that working laypeople may more readily attend. They are an excellent entry point for newer Zen students and beloved by long-time students as a touchstone of deepening zazen practice.
Payment can be mailed, delivered or paid below via PayPal.
A copy of the schedule is on the bulleton board at the Zen Center.
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) on your registration form and the tenzo (head cook) will be sure to keep you nourished.
