**FULL: Registration Closed** Winter Zazenkai: A One Day Meditation Retreat 2023

January 28, 2023

8:00am - 4pm PDT

On March 4th, Heart of Wisdom will offer a day long retreat entitled: “Investigating to Zen Practice.” Find out more and  register HERE

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

This is a day of Zen practice – meditation practice together, seated and active. The temple holds a “Zazenkai” every season. In this retreat you can set aside a day to practice simplicity and silence allowing the mind to settle into presence. The schedule includes meditation (zazen), chanting, caring for the garden and grounds, and Dharma talk. A meal will not be provided this Zazenkai, so please bring a sack lunch. A vegetarian lunch will be provided.
