Dharma Rain News


With the exterior mostly done, we turn our efforts to interior work on the duplexes – preparation and support for utilities, patching and walls. Also spreading dirt in the back in order to seed grass to create a bit of lawn back there.

Some of the interior work is to frame in where the extra showers will go in the unit closest to the Sodo. This will make it possible for people to stay in the Sodo during retreats and have showers available. We are hoping to have these ready by Rohatsu.

Wednesday Work Parties

We have regular Wednesday and Thursday work parties from around 9am to 3:30pm. There is plenty of work for people to do, inside and outside, light and heavy. Come for as much or little of the time as you wish. We have tools and gloves, but if you have your own, feel free to bring them. You are invited to join us in meditation in the Sodo from 11:30am-12:25pm. If you are around at 12:30pm, we feed you lunch.
