A retreat designed for working people. We will meet each morning and evening for meditation, and spend the day at our place of work. Guidelines for meeting work and family with the heart of meditation will be offered. The retreat ends with a day of meditation and Dharma discussion. Lunch on Saturday is included; sign-up for additional meals is available. To do that, send an e-mail to staff@dharma-rain.org, and specify which meals you wish. Breakfast and dinner are available Wednesday through Saturday. Cost for non-members is $15; the member discount is $12. It is possible to attend only part of the retreat. If you are not able to attend all zazen periods, please enter and leave at natural breaks in the schedule.

Led by Shintai and Jiko, with Fumyo and Gyoshi. Annen will serve as shuso.
