DBZ: Introduction to Zen Weekend

May 5 @ 4:00 pm - May 7 @ 2:00 pm


Join us for this unique opportunity to experience Rinzai Zen Buddhist practice deep in the Catskill Mountains. Led by Shinge Roshi, with the assistance of monastics and long-time practitioners, we will focus intensively on the central elements of Zen practice — zazen (seated meditation with attention to posture and breath), chanting, and samu (work practice). We will also learn how to use jihatsu (three traditional bowls) in formal meals, eating attentively in silence. Shinge Roshi will give a teisho on Saturday evening and meet with participants for a question-and-answer period. The weekend concludes on Sunday with an informal lunch and group discussion.  ZSS Health Protocols apply
