When the weather allows, samu weekends focus on outdoor work, such as gardening, and raking. Participants may also engage in nittensoji, tenzo work, and other tasks in and around the monastery. Mindful work is emphasized. All are welcome, including families, but please let us know in advance if you plan to attend so that we can plan accordingly; also, do tell us about any special talents or skills you may have! If this will be your first visit, arrive early enough on Friday to attend an orientation in the late afternoon. There is no fee for samu weekends, but donations are gratefully accepted. Transportation may be available from NYZ.
