Spring Zazenkai: A One Day Meditation Retreat

April 1, 2023

Saturday May 14, 8am - 5pm

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 day of Zen practice in the city. Join us for a silent day of meditation (seated and walking), chanting, mindful eating, temple care-taking, and a dharma talk. We close the day with a ceremony to renew our intention to live an ethical life.

Suggested donation. No one turned away for lack of funds.

**Please take a home test prior to arrival**

This retreat is held in silence.
