DBZ: Introduction to Zen
September 13 @ 4:00 pm - September 15 @ 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. 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. Our Abbot, Shinge Roshi, or a senior student will give a Dharma talk Saturday night and will meet with participants for a question-and-answer period. The weekend concludes on Sunday with an informal lunch and discussion.
The fee is $250. Transportation may be available from NYC. If you have questions, please contact the monastery office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 845-439-4566.
