DBZ: Volunteer Days May 1-5

May 1 @ 4:00 pm - May 5 @ 2:00 pm

Join the monastery residents this spring for volunteer days at Dai Bosatsu!

Samu (work practice) is a traditional part of Zen monastery life. When the weather allows, we will be working outside. Participants also do nittensoji (temple cleaning), cooking, and other tasks. The schedule will include zazen (meditation), chanting and traditional monastery meals using three bowls and chopsticks.

There will be an orientation for all first-time attendees.

Volunteer days are free. To sign up, please email us.  Volunteers can apply to stay on afterward for Spring Introduction to Zen Weekend (May 5-7) and the fee for the event will be waived.

Other Volunteer dates are:  May 24 – June 1;  June 7 – 16; and  June 28 – 30

Looking forward to seeing you at DBZ this spring!
