Autumn Zazenkai: A Day of Zen Practice

Friday, November 17, 2017 - 7:30 am to Saturday, November 18, 2017 - 5:00 pm
Zazen is going right into the Ocean of Awareness, manifesting the body of all Buddhas. The natural luminosity of mind suddenly reveals itself and the original light is everywhere. -Keizan Zenji
A Zazenkai is a seasonal day of Zen practice in the city. As part of our Urban Ango we will be adding an extra day to our seasonal day of practice. Join us for two days of meditation, chanting, work practice, and a dharma talk. We close the day with a ceremony to renew our intention to live an ethical life.
REGISTER (Suggested donation is $30 per day.)
You can join anytime during the day but for drop-ins that include a meal period, please let the cook know. We will eat oryoki style for these meals and observe noble silence throughout the day and night.
