DBZ: Introduction to Zen with Shinge Roshi

September 18 @ 4:00 pm - September 20 @ 3:00 pm

Please join us for our Introduction to Zen Weekend, a unique opportunity to experience Rinzai Zen Buddhist practice in a monastic environment. The program begins with an orientation late Friday afternoon, and that evening, Shinge Roshi will offer instruction in the zendo. She will give a talk Saturday evening, and lead a question and answer period on Sunday morning.

Throughout the weekend we focus intensively on the central elements of Zen practice: zazen (seated meditation with attention to posture and breath), chanting, jihatsu (traditional bowls used in silent, formal meals), and work practice.  The weekend concludes on Sunday with an informal lunch and discussion.

The fee is $275 or $250 for ZSS Supporting Members. Transportation may be available from NYC. If you have questions, please contact the monastery office at or 845-439-4566.
