The April Intro to Zen weekend is full, however, there will also be ITZ weekends July 20–22 and October 26–28. We encourage you to register early.
Introduction to Zen weekend at Dai Bosatsu Zendo is a unique opportunity to experience an in-depth introduction to Rinzai Zen Buddhist practice in a monastic environment. The program begins on Friday in the late afternoon with an informal dinner followed by a detailed introduction to zazen (seated meditation with attention to posture and breath). Orientation for using jihatsu (nested Japanese bowls) will be given the next morning during breakfast. We focus intensively throughout the weekend on central elements of Zen practice: zazen, chanting, jihatsu, and work practice. Dokuro Osho will give a talk and meet with participants in a question-and-answer period. The weekend concludes with informal lunch and discussion on Sunday afternoon.
