In the heart of harvest season. Join us for a month of residential practice. Learn to train the mind and heal & transform the heart. 

Residency at Great Vow is an embodied exploration into the core Buddhist practices of liberation and compassion. Residents follow a daily schedule which includes formal community meditation, group caretaking projects, mindful eating, study/learning, and continuous opportunities to practice mindfulness and compassion throughout the hours of the day.

Residents enjoy the supportive surroundings of the monastic environment and the wild beauty of our temperate rain forest, meadows, orchards and grounds. September is a beautiful month as late Summer transitions to Autumn and the fruits of cultivation ripen.

Residents will have the opportunity to recieve meditation instruction and on-going guidance and support from one of the teachers, as well as peer support from the ordained priests and community. Residents have the opportunity to participate in the meditation retreats that occur in their month of residency.

Embody the presence and love that you know you are capable of. Re-discover your true Self. Find peace of mind. Study in an authentic Zen lineage.
