SAMU WEEKENDS at DBZ
Join us for the weekend starting Friday afternoon and ending Sunday afternoon. When weather allows, samu focus on outdoor work, such as gardening, and raking. Participants may also engage in nittensoji (temple cleaning), tenzo (cooking) work, and other tasks in and around the monastery. Mindful work is emphasized. All are welcome, including families, but please let us know in advance if you plan to attend so that we can plan accordingly; also, do tell us about any special talents or skills you may have! If this will be your first visit, arrive early enough on Friday to attend an orientation in the late afternoon. There is no fee for samu weekends, but donations are gratefully accepted. Check the calendar for the next samu weekend.
