Zazenkai – February

With Vanessa Zuisei Goddard, Sensei

February 9, 2019

Zazenkai presents an opportunity each month, to return to the well of introspection and committed Zen practice. The extended schedule includes periods of zazen, liturgy, a face-to-face interview with a teacher, a formal talk and oryoki lunch (formal meal served in the zendo). Zazenkai is an important way for experienced students to further their practice and for newer students to take a preparatory step toward the practice of sesshin.

We strive to keep our retreat prices low and offer these programs on a sliding scale. It’s important that the dharma is available to everyone. Thank you for your continued support.

No deposit is necessary to register. You can pay the full balance at the door by cash, check or credit card.
