DBZ: Intro to Zen Weekend

September 23 @ 4:00 pm - September 25 @ 2:00 pm

After a two-year pause due to the pandemic, we are now bringing back our introductory weekend at Dai Bosatsu Zendo. Please join us for this unique opportunity to experience Rinzai Zen Buddhist practice deep in the Catskill Mountains. Taught 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 night and meet with participants for a question-and-answer period. The weekend concludes on Sunday with an informal lunch and group discussion. Registration for this event is now closed.
