Alternative Spring Break at Great Vow

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 2:00 pm to Sunday, April 07, 2019 - 1:00 pm
Learn to meditate. Deepen your meditation practice. Live in a community centered around mindfulness, awareness, kindness and compassion.


Alternative Spring Break is an opportunity to plunge into Zen practice with the support of community and teachers, and taste the benefits of calming the mind and opening the heart.

This is a special part of our on-going residential program at the monastery designed to give you a genuine immersion in Zen practice, through the practices of meditation, mindful eating, ritual/liturgy and temple work. Guidance from the teachers in the form of sanzen (face-to-face practice interviews), classes on Zen practice and states of mind.

The beauty and serenity of the monastery itself provides extra support in the process of re-discovering and resting in true self. This endeavor is life-changing and is a great opportunity for those looking to deepen their meditation practice, find peace of mind and the innate confidence and clarity that shines through when life is oriented towards presence and acceptance.

Come for one - two weeks, or for the weekend.

Cost: Sliding Scale Donation of $100 - $200 per week.
