This weekend silent retreat will be a closed retreat – that is, people attending in person will attend the entire time, no partial attendance, no drop-ins for zazen. Because we are still unable to provide overnight accommodations, those attending in person will need to go home Friday and Saturday overnight. Please do be back by 5:30am the next morning. This will be a in-person event with a Zoom option. Those on Zoom are encouraged to do the entire retreat as well, though there will not be continuous coverage – keep to meals, work practice, rest, exercise, etc., according to the schedule, keeping silence as much as possible. The retreat includes 4 oryoki meals (3 on Saturday plus Sunday morning breakfast with the community), sanzen and Dharma Talk. Meals and services are on the engawa outside for safety, so dress accordingly.
We are looking at transition, moving from one state to another, and the space within which we do that. A time near the Spring equinox, when we move from winter into spring, is an ideal time. We create a space to breathe, to rest.
Registration Closes March 3.
The Space Between Retreat registration is now closed.
