Peaceful Dwelling: Meditation Intensive

with MRO Teachers and Senior Staff

August 27 - 30, 2020

This meditation intensive provides a powerful container for exploring and developing your commitment to self-directed practice. The morning’s schedule offers the support and strength of a traditional sesshin. In the afternoon and evening, the structure of the schedule lifts, allowing you to discover the power of practicing according to your own rhythms and deepest aspiration.

This intensive is for those who have previously done zazen intensives within the MRO, especially MRO training students planning to make a formal commitment to Ango. The intensive will include oryoki breakfast and lunch, as well as face-to-face teaching. Formal training students should bring their oryoki bowls.

You can arrive either Thursday or Friday.


Please don’t let financial issues prevent you from attending a program at the Monastery. If you can’t afford the program fee, there are options.
