Here is the daily schedule for our December retreat. Please also look at these instructions on what to pack and what to expect. Typical Zen retreats are designed for intense and deep meditation experiences. Each day will include indoor and outdoor zazen (seated meditation), kinhin (group walking meditation), deep abdominal chanting, a talk at the interface of Zen and Ecodharma teachings, rest periods, samu (silent work periods) and dokusan (private interview with the teacher). To minimize spiritual bypassing, we also add council (sharing circles) and/or heart-centric songs from time to time. Cooking will be led by chef and Zen leader Imtiaz Rangwala and the food will be vegan and gluten-free (with other options, as needed).
Part-time/Two day attendance You can join the group on Friday night. Please don’t enter our home during indoor sits; entire building reverberates when someone walks in.
Legal waiver Please read this page before arriving. Everyone will need to sign it when they arrive.
