Full Day Meditation Retreat

This is an opportunity to intensify and deepen practice and settle the mind in a supportive group setting through the experience of periods of uninterrupted meditation (zazen), walking meditation (kinhin), a dharma talk or seminar, service, mindful work practice, meals, and optional one-to-one practice meetings with a teacher. Newcomer’s orientation and instructions are available.
