"We can't do it by ourselves, and no one else can do it for us."
—GBZC Sutra Book
A powerful way to more deeply explore your practice is to attend a zazenkai, an all-day sit. You are always welcome to attend for any portion of an all-day sit, as suits your schedule. The retreat includes liturgy, dokusan/interviews, zazen, walking meditation, and a Dharma talk with discussion.
Please save the date for a Virtual Zazenkai (all-day sit) on Saturday, December 19th in observance of Rohatsu, the commemoration of the Buddha's enlightenment. Led by Diane Fitzgerald, Sensei. The day will consist of three Zoom practice periods, beginning at 8:00am and finishing with a closing circle at 4:30pm. The program will include our regular GBZC Saturday program (9:00am–12:00 pm) and a period of meal/rest/study practice during which the virtual zendo will remain open for sitting. More information will follow.
All day - GBZC members: $25 / non-members: $40
Half day - GBZC members: $12 / non-members: $20
