When: First Friday of every month. Continues through Nov. 2
This Friday through Sunday retreat is designed for those new to Zen or formal Zen training.

You’ll receive instruction in zazen (seated meditation) and have a chance to experience liturgy, work as sacred activity, art and body practice, the moral teachings and Buddhist study. You’ll learn how to establish a home practice and receive guidance on bringing it into your work, family, and relationships. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the importance of the teacher-student relationship for the spiritual path.
