"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. The most recent one was held virtually on a Saturday, beginning at 8:00am and finishing at 4:00pm, and including the regular GBZC Saturday program (9:00am–12:00 pm) and a period of meal/rest/study practice.
Future dates: To Be Announced.
