This is a wonderful opportunity to deepen practice with alternating periods of zazen (seated meditation), kinhin (walking meditation), chanting services, silent meals, and a work practice period. Experience the beauty of fall colors, the crisp, cool air and the serenity of autumn's transformation. An informal dinner takes place on Friday at 5:30 PM followed by instruction in zendo and oryoki (eating bowls) procedures for any who need it. Zazenkai formally begins at 7 PM with Fusatsu. The Gate of Sweet Nectar ceremony will take place on Sunday morning at 7 AM. Please bring non-perishable food items to contribute to the local food pantry. The suggested donation for this Zazenkai is $75 for all participants and includes all meals and accommodations.
